Hiking in the Heat

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. ~Beverly Sills

The PNW is having a record breaking hot summer. This makes hiking and outdoor activities challenging. On Sunday, the British Hubby and I went for a mild hike. Okay, the British Hubby said it was a stroll. Weather you’re hiking or strolling in the heat, you need to take warm weather precautions. Hat, sunscreen, plenty of water and if you’re lucky find a path with plenty of shade. IMG_20180805_1250052The trail was lovely with all the green, but it was still hot. IMG_20180805_1237486When I was doing some research, I saw a bridge on the map, but I had no idea it would be so high up. This photo doesn’t portray just how far off the ground we are. IMG_20180805_1324457The benefit from being this high up is the view. 003Ernie has found his favorite way to beat the heat.
