I have acquired fat feet. And they feel pretty good.

We finally got a break in the weather around here and I had a chance to go on an organized hike at Clear Creek Metro Park. I kind of waited until the last minute to decide, because southern Ohio had gotten up to 2 feet of snow a few days before, and the area of the hike had certainly gotten a fair bit of snow itself. But then we’d also had a few warm days, and a day of rain.
It turned out that it was perfect for barefoot hiking.
I’m still catching up from the weekend. On Saturday I went on another of the monthly Adventure Hikes with John O’Meara, the Executive Director of Columbus Metro Parks. Spring is finally arriving (or at least pretending to arrive) in central Ohio.
And that meant there really aren’t any more issues about whether it’s too cold to do the hike barefoot.
Saturday was another of the Adventure Hikes led by Metroparks Executive Director John O’Meara. These have been a series of monthly hikes down at Clear Creek in the Hocking Hills area. We usually cover around 12 miles in 5 hours or so (including a stop for lunch).
As usual, John managed to pick a day with gorgeous weather, and he did so months in advance . . .
