My Annual Thanksgiving Hike
So when I was younger Thanksgiving meant getting up at 3:30 in the morning, gearing up and heading into the woods to go deer hunting. Thanksgiving was always a special hunting day because it was the one time of year that I got to hunt with my grandfather. The best thing was coming in after being cold, eating a big breakfast, showering and then eating a big family dinner, taking a quick nap while watching football then back out to hunt the afternoon.
I have hunted in a very long time and decades ago, no longer hunting I adopted a new tradition, my annual Thanksgiving hike. Unless I’m out-of-town I head out Thanksgiving morning, hike and cook in the afternoon.
This year was extra good, a hike, a great meal and my favorite team the Pittsburgh Steelers beating the Indianapolis Colts. Today I did about 10 miles out of Walker Pass north to Morris Peak and back, great day. Business like REI and other folks have been trying to foster a new tradition on Black Friday, making it an outdoors day, so go take a hike instead of spending all of your money and fighting crowds and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
