Life slows down on a good hike. A trail becomes an opportunity to leave the digital world of the office and car behind and revel in the camaraderie of friends and nature. Hitting the trails heals us in mental and physical ways. Each step is an opportunity to unpack your mental suitcase and be a little happier and freer as you conquer the hills. A bit like life.
