Past Hikes

So as we complete our adventures a few things will happen. I’ll move them off the upcoming list, just so people don’t get confused. I will place them here, so the links and resources will still be available. I will also blog about the hike, like a diary entry, that makes most sense to me. As we learn about the parks and trails I will update individual park pages that I have written, or create new ones. I encourage everyone to add comments and share photos, so we can all remember the fun we had.
