To the Trailhead! Hiking is a very great thing to do, it's really good for you and the views of wildlife and scenery you'll see along the way are indeed fabulous if you don't get a lot of hiking, or just plain have never been, you should defianatly try to do it some. Let's discuss hiking and share some of our great experiences and have a blast

Hmm... that's very interesting, sounds like it would be really fun just to leave clues for the other hikers (will they solve our mysteries???) =) I love hiking but it's still sorta snowy here and none of the trails are open yet.

Great subjects jime307. I love to hike also. And one of these days the snow will be melted to where you can get out and about. Do you hike for the day or overnight? Probably both huh? I found it can be really windy on top of those peaks-in town for that matter..but I finally found a Mountain Hard Wear windstopper vest..I love it. Do you have any thing that you like to take along with you-other than bear spray...lol....???

really I think that the best thing you can take along is a good hiking partner(s) but make sure its someone who will enjoy it with you and not just be a pest. I do sometimes do some overnight but ussually I stay more in the day, this summer however I've got quite a few good camping trips planned out

My family and I started letterboxing last summer. My three-year old really likes to get outside.

Speaking of hiking, outside, and Celtic, I just found my dream vacation at this link:
http://www.distantjourneys.com/travel-scotland/highland_way.html

It's a 13 day hike up the West Highland Way from Glasgow to Fort William! Now if I could only remember where I left that extra five grand.

Hi FamhairCloiche and all,

I was surfing forums on the site and found this one - great topic and FamhairCloiche's post made me want to reply. I have walked several loch trails in Scotland and in my area as well. The best trail near home is Sawyer's Camp Trail, which goes around Crystal Springs Lake, then goes up to San Andreas Lake trail. Although the ones overseas took more than a day to hike, the ones close to me can be done in a day, since the longest one is just over 20 miles round way.


--------------------
Best cheers! Robbie

For me, there is no place in Scotland like Kinlochleven. I wrote almost forty pages of a book in two days there... needless to say, I fell in love wub.gif

Like Muircheartach, I had to post because that hike sounds AMAZING!!! Bah, maybe in next year's itinerary...

Hi Jessa!

I went to your profile page and looked at your photos - I never passed through Kinlochleven, but I was just north of you at Fort William for a wee bit. I don't like to think about my time over there, 'cause if I did I'd drop everything I'm doing now and go! I fell in love with the people and the towns, not to mention the beautiful countryside! I nearly cried when it was time to come home. crybaby.gif

Anyway, it's a long story, but I am making a shepherds crook walking stick at the moment from a small ash tree that got cut down 7 years ago in my back yard and a welsh ram's horn that I got in the Midlands when I was in the UK - it will be 65" tall when completed and have a (hopefully) beautiful carved ivy vine running up the wood staff.

I had a friend that lent me one of his staffs during the time I was over in Scotland and I remember the days passing wonderfully as we walked through fields, forests and around the lochs and castles.

Unfortunately, I will not have any time to go back this year or next... Ah, I feel worse now, better end this message. sadwalk.gif

Ah, that sounds wonderful, alas, I've never been to scotland :'( although I hope to go as soon as is possible. I was hoping to get out on a hike or two during spring break, but the cursed snow keeps coming, it's not like I don't like it, I just think it's overstayed it's welcome

jime307-it's going to be time soon. The bears are coming out of hybernation, tha's always a great sign that spring is in the air. Do you have many troubles with bears up where you hike?

I've never really had any problems myself but I hear they're about and so it's best to be cautious.

I and my hiking partners ran across a momma bear and her babe one year... or should I say, we were the ones doing the running-- and all of us making noise with pans and bells and voices!!! No one harmed, but makes for a funny story because of that. wink.gif

indeed, My good friend had a bear come into his camp before. Good Idea to have some bear bells, they're nice.
