Hiking For Health & Beauty!

As you can clearly see form the photo, I am very over weight! When I was younger I hiked in the outdoors a lot. But life gets in the way sometimes and you just let yourself go. We were vacationing with our daughter's family. She invited us to do this hike. One look at this beautiful park and I said yes! I didn't get very far that day, but I made a decision to get into shape so that I could enjoy such beauty in the future! I am proud to say that I am down over 80 lbs and counting! I will be back and finish that hike! And I will invite as many friends and family as I can! This place is a piece of heaven on earth!
