Hike 2021 in 2021 Forward – Week 40

The 40th week of 2021 ended on September 30. The weather was perfect for hiking, and I tried to make the most of it. I was able to fit in three hikes at local Metroparks (Twin Creek, Germantown, and Sugar Creek) and I averaged just a tad over ten miles a day for a total of 70.4 miles for the week. That total is the best for the year, barely beating my total two weeks ago of 70.1 miles. Although the woods hiking is more strenuous than the neighborhood sidewalks, I so enjoy trekking on the paths of the forest and breathing in the endorphins of nature. Cement just does not compare to the leaf-covered trails; the cars and trucks don’t score quite as high as the deer or even the box turtle you might meet on the orange trail at Twin Creek.

The goal of walking the year in miles is getting very close. At the end of week 40, I have accumulated 1,978.86 miles leaving just over 42 miles to the finish line. If all goes well, I should complete the personal walking challenge next week.

    Great wildlife shots.

    • Thanks for the comment of the photos. Usually the deer are bounding away from me before I can get my phone camera out of my pocket, but these two were curious enough about me that they stayed for a quick photo shoot. This has been the year of the turtle for me. I have recently met a least six box turtles hiking the trails. They are introverts and prefer solo hiking (sounds a lot like me), but they will stand still for a picture.
