Yall..I live in one of the most beautiful places ever. Madison is amazing and I know I take it for granted on a daily basis. I am very lucky to live in the middle of the mountains and I can go for hikes, swim in the rivers and do so much whenever I want. I have lived here for almost my entire life and never once really hiked that much.
On Saturday, the hubs, some friends and I hiked Old Rag Mountain. It is one of the hardest hikes around. It took us around 4-5 hours and it was about 7 miles long. It was a pretty decent hike. At no point did I feel like I could not do it. I was pretty confident in my self and I am so happy that I did it. I am pretty sure that me working out and losing weight helped me with it. I know I could do it again for sure. I am already looking for my next hike.
The only downfall about living somewhere so amazing, is that everyone wants to come here and hike it. I know I should love that everyone is here and enjoying it but some days, being from here, I want to enjoy it as a local with my family and friends without a ton of people around. That is just a downfall of something so amazing becoming so popular. If you ever hiked this, let me know! If you are from the area and know of some other great places to hike, let me know as well!
