Get Physical: Hike With Your Honey

Springtime weather is perfect for going on a day hike with your favorite person. The mornings are still cool, so if you get an early start, you won't get too overheated.

Make sure to pack plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, a waterproof shell (in case it rains), a fleece jacket (it can get cold and windy on the top of the mountain), a cell phone, a digital camera, and anything else you might want to bring. Pack it all in a lumbar pack and you're all set.

Now where to go? - that is the question. I found this great website - Check out Just type in your state or zip code, and they'll list the best hiking trails in that area. Go out for a day hike and be back in time for an evening BBQ. Sounds like a great way to spend the holiday weekend.

Even though I love living in Chicago, I would jump at the chance to be near mountains if only because it would be so much fun to run out the door and go hiking...for the workout, to be close to nature and more. It sounds sooo great!

I just went on an over 4 mile hike yesterday. The first half was all uphill. Im soooooo sore today. I hike was good though. You get to the top of the mountain and it overlooks all of Santa Barbara and the ocean

This looks like a lot of fun - I'm planning a hike in the Lake District of Yorkshire with my bf this summer. Although you forgot to mention to pack patience, because you need plenty of it when you're hiking/traveling as a couple!!! LOL
