Seven Months of Day Hikes

Dayhikes Map

Since I began blogging about my series of day hikes, folks who follow my antics have started asking, “How many day hikes have you done?” and “How far have you gone?”

I’m far more interested in the former rather than the latter question, and I begin to wonder how many more decent new trails I can find within a day’s drive.  So I’ve created a Google Map of all of my day hikes since September 2009.  Each marker includes links to any blog posts or Flickr photos.

I went out for hikes on 28 of the 212 days from September 9, 2009 through April 4, 2010.  That means I was out on a day hike on 13% of the days, averaging out to almost one day hike per week.  Not bad for autumn and winter; January and February were my worst months with only two days of hiking each, while I racked up six days of hiking in October and seven in March.

Future targets include the Short Mountain Cove Trail at the Robert S. Kerr Reservoir near Sallisaw, the Ankle Express Trail at Greenleaf State Park near Muskogee, and spending a week or more of late May and June hiking various trails in Arkansas.  I dislike hot weather and don’t plan to fly out to the Pacific Northwest this summer, so I expect my hikes will trail off (ha!) noticeably in July and August.

Happy trails!
