High on Hiking

hikes around the world

Hiking is my high!

Oh how I love the ‘high’ that hiking gives me.  For me it’s not only a chance to challenge myself and keep me in shape, but it normally provides me the chance to get back to basics – simplify my thoughts and day. Breath fresh air, clear my mind, see beautiful views.  I love the chance to enjoy the big wide open views and simply ponder my current life questions or challenges.

Since I’m hiking in Turkey during the month of November – I thought I’d share some of my photography from my past hikes around the world.  These were all wonderful hikes I’ve done around the globe – some long, some steep, some short – and some failed.  Click on the title link to get more info on them.  If you get a chance – check them out when you are visiting that country!
