With the exception of Nymph Lake on the east side of the park, most of our hiking was toward the summit and down the west side. We hiked the short Tundra Communities Trail to an elevation of about 12,300 feet. On my 69th birthday, we hiked eight miles round trip to Lulu ...

I put hiking photos on my computer wallpaper, bought hiking shoes, and began to look for opportunities to hike around my home and on our travels. I increased my exercise to 60 minutes of water exercise 5-6 days a week when in Cary and sometimes on the road and lots of walking while traveling, and changed to a healthier diet, in the process losing ...
