I am so sorry. I have just gotten on to check things out and saw your message. I haven't done much hiking. I am hoping this year I can get out. Matthew just turned 2 and I can start taking him on walks. Maybe we'll go up Mt. Major and places like that. Start off small and get him used to it. I have friends from Germany that are really into hiking so hoping to go out with them too! They have an 8 month old. I went up to Keepsake Quilting this fall. I was in heaven. I can't wait to go again. On top of the Keepsake Quilting store, they have the yarn store and scrapbooking. I thought I died and went to heaven. heeeheee. Hope to see you out there this year!
