  1. Remember your Earth Day edition. Powerful and I shared it on FaceBook, hoping it got you some of that traffic. Enjoyed discovering your blog this year and going hiking this past summer. Hoping to get back out there to share some trail time in the year ahead! Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks again for sharing my Earth Day post, Jill. :)

      2015 was a great year for discovering new blogs and meeting new people! It would be fun for our little group of bloggers to get out for another hike sometime next year... I'd certainly be up for that. Have a very Happy New Year!
