1st Hike of the Season

Being a PNW native, one of my favorite activities just so happens to be hiking! I went on my first hike of the season this past weekend and it was amazing! Nothing like your first hike of the year to remind you you’re out of shape am I right? Let’s be honest, my butt was pretty sore. During the beginning fall months of last year, Peyton (the BF) and I got into the groove of hiking almost every weekend and I’m hoping to get that going again! We started off easy last week with a classic hike up Poo Poo Point Trail. (Side note – dog below is not mine. Just my friends adorable pup named Ellie ♥).


With the plan to hike *almost* every weekend this summer, I started a list of my top 10 hikes to accomplish. Some are past favorites, others I have yet to conquer!
