Born A Ramblin' (wo)Man

Sunday morning husband and I got up early and drove to
for a little bit of hiking.
We knew we needed to go early to beat the heat. 
 Even so,
I was "glowing" like a PIG!!!

It is about at 45 min. drive from our house and the hiking trails range from easy, moderate, to strenuous.
We chose moderate and thank goodness for that because I was huffing and puffing up some of the inclines!
Hiking Gear... not the most flattering of accessories is it???
Husband climbing up the last incline before we get to the summit. 
 I said I wanted to hold back for a minute to take a picture, really I was just trying to rest.
(I think I was still recovering from The Birthday party Friday night)

Not the most spectacular view, but it was pretty good. 
 Next time I want to hike where there are waterfalls!
  We will have to drive a little further,
 but I think it will be worth it.
I had a really embarrassing thing happen to me on this hike,
 but I am saving that for Awkward and Awesome Thursday!!! 
 Come back and see what happened.
If you look at this picture closely you can see how red my face is. 
Seriously, the hike down seemed to be cooler than the hike up.  We went down a different trail, so maybe it was just more shaded.
Hope you all have a great Wednesday and don't tell husband that his picture made the blog!

What a gorgeous view! That is what hiking is all about I'm thinking. And the outfit is adorable IMHO.
