Hiking mileage update

Today's little jaunt with the Crew around the school nature trail adds 2 miles to my lifetime hiking goal (=1610 miles). I'm not adding in all the trips around the Heritage Trail from my house, because that's only 1.4 miles each, round trip. That's just exercise, not an event.

Wore me out, but it was good for my soul and body. Hadn't done any real hiking since last June.
