It’s been a while since I wrote a “Things I Like” post. Having just gotten back to Connecticut, I got to do one of the things I like to do a lot during the summer: Hiking.
Recently, I got to go hiking around the West Hartford reservoir and Sleeping Giant State Park (both in CT). I not only got to enjoy myself and go running through the woods with some good company, but also got to reconnect with CT by having to drive through parts of it I hadn’t seen over a year.
I think what I enjoy most about hiking is being able to enjoy the sounds of the forests. (Most of them… Mosquitoes coming in for blood- not so much.) If you sit still and listen to the wind in the trees, it sometimes sounds like the sound of the shore. Also, it is usually much cooler in the woods than it is out in any of the urban spaces.
