Hiking the mile or so trail back to the car is always a pleasant end to the day: passing other climbers and hikers, trading brief stories about the climbs of the day, and chatting with old friends. Our little guy is shy. He has a difficult time meeting strangers and even balks at saying \"hi\" to the guys who work in our building. But that day, perhaps buoyed by the confidence gained from climbing his first mountain or the feeling of kinship with his fellow climbersor maybe just the pride of carrying his cool backpack with a couple of carabiners hanging off the webbinghe was right there with us, smiling and bantering with the people we passed. It was a big moment.
Hiking is such a great fitness activity and it gets you outdoors in the fresh air. Anyone can do it and you don’t have to fight traffic or breathe in the smog, and it’s free! Some people like to work out indoors in a fitness gym when it rains but I much prefer the outdoors. I have been hiking almost every day all winter and because it has been a mild winter on Vancouver Island we have been getting lots of rain and very little snow. Even when it snows you can hike in the snow using snow shoes. I like to say that there is really no such thing as a bad day of hiking or any excuse for not going, just inadequate clothing and gear. Be well prepared and you will enjoy hiking in the rain.
