We went hiking

Taking a short break - we did hike, honestly!
The day after Thanksgiving means that it is time to shop, for some people. For us, it is time to go for a hike. We have been able to do this just about every year since we have been married. This year, we decided to visit Hilary Hollow, a stretch of the Ouachita trail only about 30-40 minutes away from home.

It was about a 6-mile hike, so not too long, and it was fairly easy. The weather was perfect - sunny and a bit warm, but not so warm that you got too sweaty. The leaves have all fallen off the trees, and we rustled for most of the hike, as we walked on the trail. We could see down into the hollow very well, and see the streams and hillsides.

It was a wonderful addition to our Thanksgiving hikes, and we look forward to going back in the spring, to see what it looks like with leaves and wildflowers.
