Our only problem with this is, that there is no time for the two of us to go for a nice hike. I have been hiking with my Dad when I go visit with him and I really enjoy those hikes but since coming back from Florida I think Kevin and I, have only been on one hike together and that was on our way to Ottawa back in April and I can't really call that a hike. I haven't even gotten my bike out. Sunday is really the only day that we could possibly do something together because Kevin is off work at 4pm that day, but I am usually pretty tired by then because Sunday is generally the busiest day for housekeeping. Maybe once September comes we'll get a chance to go somewhere!
In the meantime I will reflect on a few of our past hikes. I think that our favourite areas for hiking have been Arizona, Newfoundland and British Columbia. That's not to say that we haven't enjoyed other places because we certainly have, I just think these places have been some of the best that we have been on.
Of course our hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on the South Kaibab Trail was definitely our #1 hike

More of the trail. Can you see the path of the trail in the centre way down there? Also behind that you can see more of the trail with the switchbacks.
We also hiked on Superstition Mountain at Lost Dutchmen State Park, but we didn't find the lost lode of gold.

We also really liked the Sedona area. The town itself is too touristy for us lots of artsy kind of places which we really aren't into, but they sure do have quite the trail system there.
