I woke up today feeling like crap and the corresponding headache didn’t help. I was considering not going on a hike today but soon realized that only some fresh air beautiful scenery and exercise would kick me out of this funk. So, needing a short hike, to accommodate my back issue.
Lewisville Park just called out to me today, and I drove out there to elevate my mood and get some endorphins flowing. There’s plenty of parking at this park and I parked in an area that leads up to the forested section of this area. I then proceeded to make a clockwise loop around Lewisville Park.
My favorite part of this hike is always the Lewis River viewpoints, and there are a multitude of them! This is where most of the photo opportunities exist, and I took advantage of this.
As I suspected, going for a hike changed my mood immensely. 🙂 This is yet another instance of hiking saving the day. The best news of all is that my back held up very well, and I experienced minimum discomfort!
