THE LONG TRAIL NEWS

Once I began perusing Robert and Martha Manning’s book, Walking Distance:Extraordinary Hikes for Ordinary People, I couldn’t put it down. The walk descriptions and wonderful photographs had me reminiscing about some of the hikes I have done in the past and dreaming of many of the other walks in the future.
