Stephen is on vacation for the week. Today, being such a gorgeous day, he asked me out on a hiking date! ;o)
It's been a while since I've been on a date with my sweetie. So, I dusted off my hiking boots and we headed south to the Adirondacks.
We did the Poke-O-Moonshine trail, which climbs an eastern Adirondack peak.
The trail is 2.4 miles round trip. Don't let the low miles fool you, it's very steep. You get quite the workout! Who needs a StairMaster when you've got Poke-O-Moonshine! lol
This is not a leisurely hike what so ever. You are continuously climbing upwards, winding around the mountain until you reach the summit. At times, you're actually rock climbing! lol
This is a beautiful view we were privy too!
It was a tad hazy today, so the colours are not as vibrant as I would have liked the picture to be. The view was breathtaking!
Once we had reached our destination, we had a little picnic! Nothing fancy, apple, cheese, crackers and nuts. It was enough to keep us well energized!
After our leisurely lunch, we headed back down the mountain!
Once home, I could barely move my body! I have not exercised since my surgeries and boy do I feel it! Nonetheless, it's a good pain, if you catch my drift! lol
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Autumn day!
