Quite the gorgeous day and we just felt like getting away from people. We headed out to a new road area and started out hike. It turns out that we actually had walked this road before and only about one mile of the hike was unique! Oh well, it didn’t matter and we enjoyed the day immensely!
We saw a couple of hunters in their truck and they stopped to say hi. They were friendly and looking for game, but hadn’t seen any. We also hadn’t seen any animals all day. Truthfully, we’re not hunters, and couldn’t harm an animal ourselves, but to each their own as long as we stay safe.
We also saw a mountain biker, that also stopped to say hi. He mentioned not having seen any hikers on this road for years!!! We were surprised to hear, but we already met three people on the road, so this area isn’t off the grid! haha
A very nice day!
