Nothing is Far

I’ve been driving past Bong Recreation Area for years. I’ve been missing a great gem. We had a fantastic time on hike 22.img_8952

Graham, Warren and I were joined by my mom and sisters: Aidan, Kate, and Dawn. We walked 1.7 miles. It was a bit misty and threatening to rain. Luckily, the rain held off and was refreshing instead of drenching. img_8953


Bong Recreation Area had some nice views of the prairie as well as a little lake. It looks like it would be a great winter trail as well. They had a set up for a sled run that looked wicked.img_8954

One of the best things about this hike was my new shoes! I ordered Salomon trail runners as my hiking shoe of choice (on sale!) They work perfectly.

Total Mileage: 44.1 miles

Nothing is far that once was near.
Nothing is hid that once was clear.
Nothing was God that is not here.

Here is the bird, the tree, the stone.
Here in the sun I sit alone
Between the known and the unknown. -Robert Francis
