I recently read a blog post about three reasons to go hiking on The Silver Pen. I follow this blog because of her determination to overcome breast cancer and what follows in life. As for Hollye’s suggestions on why to go hiking, I thought of a few more for our Idaho readers….. Hiking is accessible. Here in the Treasure Valley we have the Boise Foothills or if you want to take a drive, the Owyhee Mountains. There are trails of every level and the best way to learn is to check Ridge to Rivers website.
