The month of April has been mostly about hiking locally. However the wildflowers this Spring have been beautiful and abundant. Both Roxy Ann and the Jacksonville Woodlands Trails provide variety and color when it comes to wildflowers and it has been fun to hike both areas often and the see the changing wildflower landscape.
So before we get to those new hikes, we wanted to share some of the beautiful wildflowers we have seen in the month of April & have posted pictures below. We did not include the names so that you can simply enjoy their beauty. However, if you really want to know the name, just email us.
Also this is the time of year when most long distance hikers begin their thru hikes. We are again following Erin "Wired" Saver who is hiking the Appalachian Trail to finish her triple crown. She does a great job of updating you almost daily with stories, pictures and videos and has recently been featured in various magazines.
Two new blogs we are following are MarmotsAdventures as she hikes the Continental Divide Trail and Eathikerepeat which features Alan & Janel as they hike the Pacific Crest Trail. So in a sense we are watching the Triple Crown hiked at the same time! Please take some time and check out each of these blogs by clicking the link highlighted or use the link listed under blogs we follow. You can also subscribe to each blogs so you get automatic updates. It's lots of fun to follow along on these hikes.
