I love to explore new areas, I love to hike too! So venturing to Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge would be a fun filled hike. Plus, its amazingly close to home so why not. Hopped in my spectacular jeep with my best friend and headed to Far Rockaway. Got a little lost, saved by the GPS, crossed the bridge and reached the visitors center
It's a small place- the trail was only 2 miles but it was a beautiful place. I'm not into birds but if you are a bird watcher then this is the perfect place to be. There are all sorts of birds all up in this place. The views change as you walk and it gets better with every step you take. Go for a quiet walk, watch the birds, read a book, whatever action you choose it is a very relaxing place to be.
Venturing off trail if you dare because you can easily get lost if you're not on the main loop trail. But we risked it anyway and found ourselves faced with huge trees- one that vera claimed to look like a scene from Twilight and another which reminded her of Lord of the Rings... Haha.
Don't take the little things in life for granted. Breathe it in and give me a big smile!
