Buttermilk Trail & Boulevard Bridge Hike + 30/30 Challenge Update


Last weekend, we hiked the Buttermilk Trail from Reedy Creek to the Boulevard Bridge and back. 

There are some amazing trees
along the Buttermilk Trail



When we got to the Boulevard Bridge, we walked across, because it's such a beautiful view of the river -- a view you can't appreciate at 55 mph.

I'm not afraid of bridges














Of course, no hike is complete without a dip in the river


and some dirt on the snout

30/30 Challenge Update

Mom and I are doing very well in the 30/30 challenge.  So far we have walked well over 30 minutes every day in January, even tonight in the cold and the rain.

  5. Nothing like a nice swim and some dirt on the snout to make exercise fun and rewarding.

    Happy New Year to you!

  6. Nice one Garth. We like the dip and the dirty snout. I am so lucky as I get at least 2 hours a day hunting squirrels. Have fun with your 30/30 challenge. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. That was a grand adventure walk. I am so envious of your swimming opportunities.

    Momma only walks with me five days a week, but she says if you average things out then we're getting in our 30 per.
