The good word for today is Hike

Going for a walk is like taking a hike if you live around here. We enjoy plenty of hiking trails that zigzag up and down the mountain; consequently, you have to catch a breath. It’s good exercise and can take more than an hour for an adequate workout, but the trail that leads down to the river also leads to the city sewer too commonly associated with nausea and acid gas. I always have to plug my nose. The toxic fumes make me sick but hey! We’re in the great outdoors and don’t you enjoy it?! *sarcasm*

Once, I ran across a deer. It’s a good thing I was on the other side of the fence. Although, I’m mostly afraid of other things happening. I get discouraged when I think about it. You never know who or what might jump out at you. It’s disturbing. I don’t want to end up dead by possibly being stabbed or robbed. There is a constant awareness that street people sleep in those bushes. They leave old clothes and blankets hanging around, and you can see their makeshift tents deep in the forest of trees. What’s important for us hikers is that they don’t harass us and that they don’t disturb anyone and mind their own business. The path accommodates a significant amount of activity, like joggers and bicycle enthusiasts on any given day of the week. Stay away from those trails at night. It would be dangerous I think. Although, there hasn’t been any incident or reports of anything on the news that I’ve heard. If I want to be safe during the day, it is always a good idea to have a partner with you. Just in case. That is the main reason I avoid hiking in that area, but let’s be honest, if I wanted to exercise I would, and damn the excuses! Exercise helps me feel better, no doubt about it. I feel more energetic and healthy; otherwise, my muscles are borderline atrophic. I need to work my leg muscles and get my heart rate up regardless of the transients living near the hiking trails. I wouldn’t worry so much for my safety, if THEY ALL TOOK A HIKE!
