In any event, we covered more than five-and-a-half miles and 1,200 feet up and down. It was a very pleasant way for me to get some exercise, with good friends, and a beautiful environment. We were done by noon. I will be glad when the weather warms up a little more and the rain decides to visit us less often. But the good part is that I did get my steps in for the day and am feeling pretty darn good.
