My Annual Thanksgiving Day Hike
After a day’s walk, everything has twice its usual value. – G.M. Trevelyan
Each year for Thanksgiving I do a hike in the morning, turkey in the afternoon. My Thanksgiving tradition includes three of my favorite things, hiking, cooking and eating. So this year I did twelve miles on the PCT heading north out of Walker Pass and then to steal from Arlo Guthrie, ate a Thanksgiving meal that couldn’t be beat.
The thing that I really love about this annual hike is the same thing I love about hiking in general. The ability to get out, stretch myself physically, to get out of my head for a few hours. The absolute joy of sitting on the side of a mountain experiencing natural quiet, the chance meeting of a couple of hikers. Mountain therapy as I call it, is a really magnificent tonic.
So here’s a few photos from my hike, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving my friends, I’m grateful for all of your support. ~ Rev Kane
