Take a Hike

Happy Sunday Funday peeps! This weekend has been super nice thus far & the only thing that would make it better is if it didn’t end.

For the past two weekends, D, Axl and I have gone hiking, each time in a different location, and I see no end in sight. Getting outside with my dudes is one of my absolute favorite things to do! D did some research and found an awesome area in South Knox with trails along Fort Loudon lake called IC King Trails.

While hiking, we realized that each weekend has gotten warmer: Max Patch was cold with several inches of snow, House Mountain was chilly but super sunny, which warmed us right up and today was 60°! I am not upset by this one bit. I do love hiking in the warm temps as well as the cold temps, but it is nice to not have to worry about having all the layers on and dealing with gloves. We also ended up covering 5.6 miles! It felt soooo gooood.

Axl Rose per usual lead the way adding extra mileage for himself by running off the trail left and right following scents. D made the observation that we probably wouldn’t be so active and into hiking if it wasn’t for our sweet Axl, and he’s right. Axl makes us better people and makes us stop and enjoy nature. My heart is so happy when I see our sweet dude running his puppy heart out, tongue dragging the ground and smiling from adorable ear to adorable ear.

Here’s the photos I snapped during our hike…I hope these bring you all some joy! Do you have any fun plans for the Superbowl? We’re spending it with our amazing fam, and I’m most excited about the food. 😉
