52 hike challenge summaryThe following is a summary of my 2017 participation in the 52 Hike Challenge 2017. I decided to participate in the challenge after reading about it on social media. I thought it would be a great “couple” goal for Hubs and me while helping me get healthier. While I’m hopeful that we will be able to do most of the hikes together, we have each done solo hikes due to our schedules. To document each hike in the challenge, I am writing a summary blog post/photo essay. While I’ve linked each hike listed below to its corresponding post, you can also scroll through all of the posts at once. To date, I’ve hiked 5.73 miles in 2017.
