Day dreaming today ......

Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

Rarely if ever do I do a cut-and-paste blog post, but for all my hiking friends like Kat Palmiotti, Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 and Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP among others, I couldn't wait to share this article I saw on Flipboard today, 10 of the Best Alpine Hiking Trails

We've done Hike #10 in the past, (picture is from that fabulous hike) and bits and pieces of some of the others.

I think I need to investigate which segments of one or two of these I'd like to tackle next!

How about you?

You're a hiker, Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, GRI, WLS - have you ever visited Switzerland? The Grinderwald area is full of glorious hikes, both short and longer. You would love it there.

Hi Lottie Kendall,

That looks pretty darn steep from the angle of the image!  But also very beautiful.

Hi Lottie,
That's quite a list.  If you enjoy great hiking, come to the Pacific Northwest. Here's a list to get you started:

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - our trail, while it did have some steep inclines, was a traverse; the peak in the picture was a spur trail, one I simply couldn't pass by!

Carol Williams - thank you for the list of Pacific Northwest hikes. We'll keep that handy. We've done a bit of hiking at the Snowqualmie Pass area, including the jaw-dropping Kendall Catwalk trail, but none in Oregon and very little on the Olympic Peninsula. Maybe some day....

Hi Lottie,  Sounds like great hiking trails.  We have some really nice hiking trails here.  Finding a great hiking trail is nearly as important as the hike itself.

The weather is still good for a hike in most parts of the country. This can give some good ideas to go after a full Thanksgiving dinner!

This picture is a short spur off the main trail, Kathy Streib which wasn't nearly as steep. Lots of people before me couldn't resist the drama of this peak.

Hello Bob Crane - it's great fun reading trail descriptions, studying them on the map, and then -- finally -- getting out on them.

Hi Francine Viola - Switzerland is a tad far for my after Thanksgiving hike. Perhaps some of the trails in the Pacific Northwest that Carol Williams sent me  would work for you?

Yep, we have some pretty amazing trails to hike in the Pacific Northwest - I'm glad Carol shared them with you.  Although, the list leaves off many located in the pristine Columbia River Gorge - also known for world class hiking trails and forever views. That is a great photo of you on that peak.

The Columbia River Gorge is on my "to hike" list, Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD . We've had several fabulous hikes at Snowqualmie Pass, and a few short ones on the Olympic Peninsula -- many trails left undone. Happy Thanksgiving to you both

Hi Lottie - your photo and your blog post made me smile from ear-to-ear! That list of hiking trails sound gorgeous!!! It would be fun to hike with you but I just got off your most recent post and see that neither one of us could get very far :(

But we shall not surrender! We shall stay positive! After all, we believe this is true: 

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every byway,
Every path you know.

 

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.

Indeed, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP , this is not the week for me to climb mountains. But, I will again, and hope the same for you. Switzerland is calling me, and perhaps a visit to your daughter is on your horizon.

Oh, I love this and I also love the idea of having a hikers meet-up! Of course, Kat Palmiotti (the queen of hiking) will make a great guide too! LOL

A late Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours, Lottie!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - I am sure you and your family had the best-ever Thanksgiving yesterday--so much for which to be grateful. 

Once when I hosted an Active Rain meet up in the Presidio in SF, we had about 10-12 in attendance. As I recall, Jim Patton and one friend were the only ones who opted for a gentle hike afterward. Elisa Uribe Realtor #01427070 has hiked with me too - would like to do that again.

I just love that you enjoyed hiking with fellow members, Lottie. How cool is that? As for a meet-up, I was SO looking forward to the NAR/CRS/AR Meet-up earlier this month but, sadly, it never came to fruition. Maybe next year we can all meet in NOLA! 

Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving with your wonderful family. I just want to hit replay - it couldn't have been a better day!

Hi Roy Kelley - no hikes planned this weekend. Our big deal is tomorrow, our family gift-wrapping party and brunch where we wrap gifts for the family we "adopted" this Christmas. It's our favorite part of the holidays, even worth giving up a hike day. Wishing you and Dolores the best, Lottie.
