2mi + Hike = Accomplished!

My family recently took up hiking as a new hobby. I thought before hiking is a boring hobby but I just realized that hiking is FUN! I get to appreciate the beauty of nature even more, plus it's a great way to burn calories and fat stores....lol! 
Our 5-year old daughter is always on the go. She likes nothing better than to get moving. Hubby and I are thinking of taking her to half dome Yosemite in the next few years. She was 6-month old when we took her there.
This park is the best hiking trail in town! We went to this place last weekend.
The trails here are well marked and vary in difficulty from level one to four. Level one is obviously the easiest and four... the most fun. Of course we took the fun level....lol!
The trail map. We reached our goal! Ayay, a 2 mile hike was challenging.

Salamat sa comments sis. Sensya na di ako nakabloghop today. Worried sick kami kay BIL, may taning na buhay nya, sabi ng doctor he has 6-9 months to live na lang. Oh boy, we all thought that the operation and chemo will saved him but stage 4 n daw yung cancer kaya may complications. Sige po, bed na ako, mwah!
