We Parked at the Big Foot State Park lot.
It was almost 1 pm.
There is a bait dispenser at Big Foot Beach.
Your only option was night crawlers.
The sky was picture perfect.
The temperature in the 70s.
Every house a mansion.
For your viewing pleasure as you walk the trail.
It winds through the properties and you can peek at it all as long as you stay on the path.
It wound through a golf course. Lots of old trees and a lovely clubhouse. Private Club.
Money….do you see money?
The landscaping varied and some properties had incredible flowers still blooming perfectly.
Fireman adjusted his pace for me.
We drank water.
We walked 6 miles or more.
My steps soared to over 10,000 then over 20,000.
The leaves are just starting to change a bit.
With all that money, could someone replace the slide.
This thing is hazard from MY childhood days...
We really didn't stop on the way out,
the way back we stopped twice.
I had a Kind bar, Fireman likes Cliff bars.
I got a bit crabby as soon as the parking lot was in sight.
But the scenery all the way along was such a great distraction.
This was Fireman's favorite mansion.
The path goes 21 miles around Lake Geneva.
We did over 6.
When we got back to the car I was CRABBY.
Needed our turkey sandwiches from the leftovers of the night before.
It was a gorgeous day.
I finished the day with 24000 steps.
and yes I walked around inside my house like a goof ball to get the last 60 steps in to watch the number turn on my New balance wrist pedometer. I felt tired but good.
Then I went to bed.
And the most bizarre thing happened.
As I started to fall asleep I began to shiver uncontrollably.
For a half an hour.
I kept thinking it would stop.
I pulled the covers up.
I went downstairs and put a hoodie on over my p js.
IF i wasn't' so tired I'd have taken a hot shower.
I shivered in the kitchen waiting for my heating pad to microwave to hot.
Then I got under my covers again and slowly stopped shivering.
Maybe donating blood the day before and maybe not drinking so much during the hike…..
maybe it was dehydration?
(Oh I knit on the way up and back! )
Have you had an attack of the shivers?
What's your favorite hike?
