Time To Get In Shape By Doing Some Hiking

Wordless Wednesday




I really need to get in shape and lose some weight. If I'm not on my V-Star, which is some exercise, I'm sitting here at the computer. My family and I have been trying to make it an effort to get out and enjoy more of the Colorado outdoors. Well, at least my hubby and I. The kids are kind-of fighting this effort, lol. To make this as wordless as possible, we went hiking in a new area called Cheyenne Mountain State Park and the photos were taken there. This park is at the base of the mountain of the famous "Air Force Cheyenne Mountain."


I just love this photo with Cheyenne Mountain in the background. Took this while on the hike.

Looking back on a portion of the trail we were hiking. It is gorgeous out here. There is tons of wild flowers to see. We did a couple of miles today. It was lots of fun. Currently this park is only open for hiking on the weekends.

Wishing you many summer adventures,

Biker Betty

Those are beautiful pics!
But hiking is way too much like exercise for my tastes.
Happy WW!

I guess that hiking would definitely qualify for the "get out and exercise" you want to do!

It looks beautiful!

I don't see how anyone can look at a dandilion and say that there is no God.

Betty - I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I love it! I, too, am a motorcycle rider.

I'd love to profile you on my website: her-motorcycle.com
I also blog, but not about motorcycling - rather, knitting!

Hey I lowered my wife's bike by trimming the seat foam it is the safest and least expensive. You can also drop a tire size like from 150/80/16 to a 140/80/16
