I’m lucky to live in an area with lots of great hiking trails. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is close by and there are a number of Metro-Parks (run by the county) in the area. I take my dog Nunu with me to hike as much as I can though as she’s aging, I have to be selective on where I take her. She really can’t do long distances any more.
I am going to have to decide if I will hike alone since Nunu can’t go that far. I’ve never felt alone when I’ve had my dogs with me.
I signed up for some hiking clubs on Meetup.com but have only gone to one hike. I don’t know why it feels so stressful to join a group where I don’t know anyone but it does.
I love hiking so I’ll have to figure out a solution I guess.
