Here are my top twelve hikes for 2016, in no particular order. This is always such a difficult list to make, since I enjoy each and every one of my outdoor adventures. Even if it's a trail I've already hiked before, I still take away something new from it... a new sight, experience, or feeling.
It might be an enhanced connection to the natural world, learning something new about myself or working out whatever issues I have in my own head during a solo hike, the look of wonder and joy on the faces of my children as they explore, and of course the comradery of an adventurous group; who might just find themselves in an unexpected situation while taking an alternate route. Keep calm and hike on!
