Nothing Like a GREAT Hike!! Head to the Catskills!

Went hiking in the Catskills - they have these AMAZING waterfalls and a killer hike to boot! Went off the beaten path and climbed some serious mountains.....fell a few times BUT what a rush! Nothing like a natural adventure (workout) to get you out of city once in a while.

Afterwards, went apple picking for some healthy snacks.....

Workout Date: 
Sun, 10/11/2009 (All day)
