Three weeks is a long time for Hiking with Impunity to go without any time spent on the trails, but that's exactly how long it had been since Hike #27. To prevent any set-back in our physical fitness level, we continued our yoga practice to stay in shape. On October 5, 2011, we were finally able to get back out onto the trails, and chose a return visit to Green Lane Park as our first hike in a while.

Today was three weeks to the day that we at Hiking with Impunity had been on a hike! Three long weeks! The persistent rainy weather we had been having coupled with our recently busy schedule obstructed us from being able to hit the trails.
But today there was sun. The temperature was a cool 70ish degrees, the skies were clear, and we were ready to hike. We decided to head back to Green Lane Park today - this time using the trails on the opposite side of the reservoir from where we had hiked before (see Hike #18). Amusingly, the last time we had been to Green Lane Park was after a streak of bad weather.
We'll be bringing you full details from this hike soon. For now, take a look at the picture on the left... It was a beautiful day!
The summer can be a vicious bitch, and I mean that with all due respect. It had been nearly two weeks since our last decent hike. Thunderstorms, heat waves, work - every time we tried to plan a mid-week mini-hike, something got in the way. On Wednesday, July 27th though, the humidity was low and the temperature was a cool mid-80s. I picked up one of my favorite books - 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Philadelphia, by Sandra & Gareth Kear - and flipped through it looking for our afternoon excursion.
