Hiking is the preferred term, in Canada and the United States, for a long, vigorous walk, usually on trails (footpaths), in the countryside, while the word walking is used for shorter, particularly urban walks. On the other hand, in the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, the term walking is acceptable to describe all forms of walking, whether it is a walk in the park or backpacking in the Alps. The word hiking is also often used in the UK, along with rambling (a slightly old-fashioned term), hillwalking, and fell walking (a term mostly used for hillwalking in northern England). In New Zealand a long, vigorous walk or hike is called tramping. It is a popular activity with numerous hiking organizations worldwide, and studies suggest that all forms of walking have health benefits.

My better half and I we hike a lot and normally only I am the one who is packing.

Don't mind if I do. :D
So, the last five months has been hellacious here, but last week, I finally got out to do some hiking. I grew up on the dunes, so it was the natural pick for this short jaunt. Here are a handful of pics I took in case others might enjoy. Cheers. :)
I got stopped by some sheriff's deputies (not game wardens or state trooper) while hunting waterfowl on private land and asked for ID. I presented him with my drivers license, concealed carry permit, and hunting licenses. The officer had informed me that a passing motorist who lived in the...
