When my husband Dave was on the pickle ball court or golfing or playing baseball or watching football my brother and I would head out on a hike. The views were spectacular but my was it ever steep. On the upward trail I had to do parts of it a hundred steps at a time and then stop to catch my breath and on the downward trail I admit I had to hold my brother’s hand in sections where there were lots of loose rocks and a very steep descent. We hiked nearly ten kilometers and most of it was up or down. I am sorry to have lost my hiking buddy now that my brother is gone. My sister is coming tomorrow however and I think she might be willing to hike too. First though I will have to get new running shoes. I wore my old ones out while hiking with my brother.
