I used to hike with dogs in the woods as a job. I'm thinking of doing that part time again now that my school year gig is winding down.
I really like walking on beaches. Does that count? I like the kind where we bust out the species id manuals.
I just like to enjoy each outdoor experience. I find hiking more pleasurable when I just go out and notice what is around me that day.
I have no idea. Probably when I had runaway dogs during the off leash hiking. You have one dog that just won't quit, and 13 others that are tired, hungry, and thirsty.
I may eventually be interested in leading nature walks. I am really bad at organizing, though, unless it involves advocating for somebody else. I tend to shy away from taking on such responsibilities, because I tend to let balls drop. And then people are like, what happened to those balls that were in the air?
I enjoy exploring nature and finding small creatures. I'm very much a stop / explore / photograph woods tromper, rather than a power hiking one.
