    Consult the guidebook

    Must hike twenty miles

    This is great! I compose a “Hike-u” on every hike. For example:

    Four girls on a hike
    Searching for a waterfall
    Two of them fall down

    The smokies were free,
    Now there’s a fee,
    Ditmanson should flee.

    To hike run and bike

    The Trail awaits me.

    I dream of a hike
    Through the North Georgia mountains
    To start the A.T.

    To hike is to love
    A purity that exists
    In nature’s forests

    The snow lingers on
    My feet yearn for a long hike
    Can’t wait for springtime

    May you hike with joy.
    With beauty all around you,
    may you hike with peace.

    A hike in my town
    no mountains no hills no climbs

    Weight of pack on back
    New hike in my old-friend boots

    Colored, falling leaves
    The hike erases the world
    boots, pack, renews me

    Waiting for spring time,
    Will the snow soon go away?
    Hikes depend on it…..

    Sleeping in hammock,
    After a day’s hike is done.
    There’s nothing better!

    Hike with all your heart
    Palms in close contact with rock
    Like a fox hunting

    I’ll thru-hike the trail again.

    head is in the clouds

    Drifts erase the path
    Wind whipped ridge, like cake icing
    Nameless hike-steps lead.

    Trail-seasoned, they said;
    “Remember, hike your own hike”
    My mantra each step.

    No blaze for awhile
    Hike on, yet still none ahead.
    Turn around… right there.

    Scchhllluck. Muck… sucks… boots… in.
    Hike wet, muddy, cold, tired.
    Dawn’s warmth beckons me.

    His little sack’s full,
    We hike to him… trail magic!
    Blushed, juicy cherries.

    Meandering steps
    Marking powdery whiteness;
    Winter-still, I hike.

    Ordinary days
    Just ordinary hike days
    Yet miles left behind.

    Nature nudges me
    A hike to begin the day
    Joyous rising sun
