It's probably not a surprise that one of my favorite things to do is to go on hikes. Northern California holds a variety of beautiful trails that I'm always excited to venture.
On this particular day the Mr. took me out for a hike (I fear going alone). We were looking for a specific trail but ended up way out in the boonies and well if you know my husband and I, we're all about random, sporadic adventures. So we decided to take a windy backroad that led to a pretty cool trail area and headed on out. Almost two hours later we witnessed a breathtaking view of Sonoma's rolling hills, hiked up the most unbelievably steep road for a good 20 minutes, had fun like eight year olds with the echoing of our voices from the mountains, and walked calmly through a batch of bees. eeek! (actually, Ryan walked calmly while I squeezed my eyes shut as he gave me a piggy back ride.) I don't like bees. Just honey.
The best part is always the lightness I feel after a good long hike in the outdoors. Oh and that he gave his evening shift away to another coworker just to spend more time with me! (it is very rare he's willing to skip out on any shifts, so this was a win for me!)
*hint, hint for the Mr: let's go on another hike soooon : )
