Hiking House Mountain

Hiking House Mountain

For Good Friday, hubby and I wanted to do something outdoors together. We debated between off-roading and hiking, and ultimately decided to hike House Mountain.

I wore my heart rate monitor and used the app MapMyFitness and got this:

Hiking House Mountain

Lots of calories burned!

It was a very overcast/cloudy day. I wish the sun had been out more for better photos. Here are some of the photos I took (some from the iPhone, others from my new Canon Powershot G7 X).

I actually used a hiking pole for the first time and it will definitely be coming all for all other hikes. I don’t have the best balance and it was a true help. I had cut my ankle the night before and that made the hike a bit more uncomfortable than usual.

Do you enjoy hiking? Where? Have you ever used a hiking pole?  

Cheers!

  1. What gorgeous shots! I do love hiking, but haven’t found any good spots here in Illinois. I’m sure there are a ton of great spots in Minnesota or Wisconsin.

  2. Those views are incredible and it looks like you had a great time. I like to wear my GPS tracker when hiking too because it’s so much fun to see where you went.

  3. Beautiful pictures. Great hike. So many lovely views.

  4. This hike looks insanely peaceful!!!! I don’t even know what it’s like to be in a place where there aren’t 242374903284 people! ha!

  5. That looks like a great hike! I’ve been hiking a lot lately… well, until I busted my ACL. It’s so different hiking in the southwest… pretty, but I miss those southern wooded views!
