Hiking The Walls of Jericho

Yes, I hiked the Walls of Jericho on Tuesday.

And it was very, very interesting. I love me some hiking so I totally jumped on board to go get out in nature during Spring Break.

It was a whole day trip so I’m going to recap my whole day with lots of pictures! Hey, isn’t that what bloggers do anyway?

Yes.

Tuesday

Alarm went off at 6:30.

I (well first, I put in my contacts) made myself a green smoothie and did not take a picture because it wasn’t pretty for some reason…

So here’s a recycled photo

I actually had coffee that morning too, and if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you would see that I’ve really cut back on my coffee intake. Coffee is now a treat. If you want to know why I have decided to do so, click here. I’ve been drinking way more green tea instead.

I drink coffee every other day now, but I decided to have a few cups on my trips.

We left around 9 AM and headed to North Alabama…very North.

We got “hangry” around 11:30 and stopped at Walgreens to grab a Clif Bar. Yum! I rarely eat these, but it definitely helped me during the hike.

We got ready and started on our hike! And I made sure to turn on my GPS watch but, I’m horrible at stopping it and forgetting to turn it on for over half a mile.  WhoopsEmbarrassed smile

I saw a lot of couple’s initials on trees along the way. There was one tree I saw that had so many markings that you couldn’t even tell what they said anymore!

And I got to be in TWO places at once today! The TN border was right by this tree.

You bet I put one foot in TN and one foot in AL!

Oh my goodness, look at that hair. Hiking hair, for sure.

Very, very tired though.

I tried the Black Satin Dark Roast and it was so tasty!

Then we headed home!

Great trip, so much fun Smile
