Hiking the Trails….. all the fails.
June 8, 2017
A couple weeks ago, I went out on a blind date with a girl named Lauren. One of my friends to her from work and thought we would make a great couple. We had fun on our first night, so we decided to plan another time to get together. Being the manly man I try to be, I decided we should consider some outdoor adventures. That way, I would have the chance to show her just how manly I am.
She and I decided to take a little hike down the Clear Creek hiking trail. It’s not too far from where I live and, hey, I’ve been hiking before so it couldn’t be too difficult, right? At least that’s what I’ve always thought.
I did a little research before our trip and saw that the trail was just a little over 2 miles long. This was encouraging to me since I don’t do much hiking. What I didn’t realize, though, was that the difficulty level of the trail was considered moderate to strenuous. I didn’t figure that out until we arrived at the park and was looking at the information board. There was no backing out at that point, though. Didn’t want Lauren to think I couldn’t handle it. Besides, I had worked with Tree Removal Alexandra Hills years before, so I knew how to rough it somewhat.
Shortly into the hike, trail went into a thick forested area. I’m not a fan of snakes, so I became a little nervous at this point. I picked up a walking stick and forged my way through the woods with Lauren leading the way. Come to find out, she is quite the expert of hiking. This was a bit of relief to me on one hand, but threatened my manhood on the other. Don’t worry, I was able to suck it up and not look near as nervous as I felt.
We did pass several waterfalls and had to hold hands while crossing the water, so I can’t complain too much about the day. And, lucky for me, we both made it out unscathed and with my manhood intact.
Next time, though, we may just visit the museum.
