Several years ago, Brad, Tim, Laura and I hiked the entire 30-mile trail in four sections. I asked Dad if he wanted to try it and he agreed. We plan to do it in over the next four weeks, finishing just before he has back surgery that will take him out of the game for a while. (But hopefully alleviate lots of pain!)
Scheduling made Wednesday the better option this week, so I picked him up after work and drove to the Newberry Road trailhead - the far west end of the Wildwood Trail:
We mostly had the place to ourselves, crossing paths with just eight people in 2.5 hours.
A short hike up the approach trail, and we were done!
Mom couldn't hike with us but volunteered to meet us at Springville and shuttle us back to the start. That was awesome and saved so much time! Thanks, Mom :)
Our reward was dinner at Davidsons - yum!
Brad got in on the action, too. He was having a rough week at work. Grumpy Pants:
Looking forward to next week's hike :)
