Update: My hiking trip
Friday, September 18, 2020
Accomplishment: I did a section of the Superior Hiking Trail. 11.6 miles of some difficult trail, which I was told that we did the easier section of the trail.
that is one item I can check off my to-do list.
I did not really enjoy it that much because the trail was so hazardous with lots of rocks and roots that we had to step over and/or on. I saw more of the woods floor than the scenic views above my knees. I am not sure I would want to do that again. But there is one section where the trail was not too bad for walking and there is a beautiful lakeside camping area just a couple miles from the parking lot. That part, I would consider doing again.
I lost a pound or two hiking and I discovered that I did not get as hungry as I thought I would. Lesson learned from that, stay busy and I don't really need to eat in between meals. And I can survive if I do not get up to snack in the middle of the night.
The first couple of days, we had no cell service, it was nice being disconnected from the electronics. I survived. I think I need to keep that in mind and make sure I disconnect more frequently.
