My 52 Hike Challenge Journey

This crazy idea all started as a joke between my husband and I while on a New Years Jaunt down a local river trail! While going along the trail, I wistfully joked that we could possibly go on a hike every weekend and my husband suggested I could write a new series on this, 52 in 52! That being, 52 hikes in 52 weeks. Little did I know that the 52 hike challenge already existed. So, before I knew it I had already signed up and I am looking forward to this journey in 2022 and of course taking you along with me and sharing all the hiking adventures we will embark on!
