Why don’t you take a hike

18 Apr

We really mean that as an invitation and a suggestion: Take a hike!  April is the perfect time to talk about exploring the great outdoors in a serene, environmentally-friendly and truly “green-ing” kind of way.  It’s spring in North Dakota and we’ve got trails just waiting for you.

Some of the state’s most popular trails are those found in Theodore Roosevelt National Park and many of the state parks.  The Maah Daah Hey Trail is a 96-mile trail system that has received international recognition for its scenery and challenges.

There’s a new book by Susan Wefald called, “Spectacular North Dakota Hikes” which highlights 50 great day hikes in North Dakota. This is a wonderful companion to a trip around North Dakota – almost like having a hiking guide!

About two years ago, we brought our niece and nephews to North Dakota for a week of “Fun with Auntie and Uncle” and during that time enjoyed a trip to the South Unit of TRNP.  Even though we had been to a waterpark, state fair midway and lots of other cool stuff that week, the kids still say that the highlight of their trip was hiking in the National Park and seeing the wildlife. We’re all anxious to do it again!

    That sounds like an interesting book. I would like to find it in a bookstore and look it over first before I jump in and buy it but I love the premise.

      Hi Brad – we just checked and the Bismarck Barnes and Noble store is carrying the book in-store, otherwise we know it can be ordered thru B&N too.
