limited weekend time, a few local favorite spots that always deliver scenery and exercise, that I keep returning to.
Convenient, quick in and out, I still take photos, but all my albums are starting to look alike. Big rock here, fallen weird tree there, sunrise vista point, sharp cliff drop off, summit panorama and 360 video... blah blah.
it's just so convenient to keep repeating the same top 10 trails, I've explored the heck out of them. I even give away laser jet print-out of maps to lost strangers on the trail, because I know exactly the spot where first timers get lost.
but I'm in a rut.
got this book 15 years ago, 101 hikes, I thought I was going to visit all of them.
most of the time, I can sneak out for 10 to 12 hours, and between driving in/out to the trail head, I just have enough time to bag a peak and head back home before dark.
trying to motivate myself to go somewhere new.
