The whole secret to CIVD is getting sufficiently warm blood down to your feet.
How warm? And how can you do so?
Saturday was another of the “Adventure Hikes” at Clear Creek Metro Park, led by their Executive Director, John O’Meara. He started them last year when he was training to climb Mt. Everest, and they were so popular that he has continued them this year.
They are fairly strenuous, with this one covering 12.3 miles in just under 5 hours (and that includes the stop at a scenic location and for lunch).
They also tend to make barefoot hiking a bit more of a challenge.
Last week I wrote about one of the organized hikes to Beck’s Rocks. On Saturday, Clear Creek Metro Park conducted another one. I debated with myself whether to go or not, thinking it might just be a boring repeat.
But there is always something new to see, and to photograph.
