Hello there readers,
Over the weekend, my family and i took a short hike. A little over a mile. Nothing major. Ever since buying my 3 year old his own walking stick, he's been anxious to use it. Before I get to the trail, let me tell you about this really cool app called All Trails. If you're in to hiking, you should check it out. They're not sponsoring this blog post or anything, I just thought it was really cool. You can search for hiking trails near you. There's a whole community that rates trails so you know what you're getting in to before you go. And you can even check out trail maps ahead of time. It's great!
Anyway, back to the trail. Like I said, it was a short hike. But short hikes can be fun and exciting, too. On this particular hike, we decided to take a turn on a nature trail which cut through the trees and most other people weren't taking. And I'm glad we did. Because along the way, we found a little flooded area and a baby gator sunning itself.
Of course, this is Florida so I've seen plenty of Alligators in my time. But it's still always so neat to come up on them in the wild because they're amazing creatures. The closest I will ever get to seeing a dinosaur in person, right?
This was too short of a hike so I didn't bring my GoPro with me or anything. However, I did use my GoPro a lot in the Smoky Mountains and I'm actually working on creating a video for that trip. If you're interested in seeing my hikes through the Smoky Mountains, or anything other hikes I've taken or will take in the future, check out my other YouTube channel Bonds' Hikes. It's been a while since I've posted but I'm going to start using it again and sharing our hiking/camping adventures there. I hope you'll check it out!
