As I get older, climbing rocks and steep hills becomes more difficult.Not too long ago I took a detour during one of my hikes and found a hidden area out of sight of the worn pathway I frequently walk.The terrain became steeper and large rocks blocked the way.Driven by what was to be found... continue reading
