Fun fact about me: I really like to hike. A beautiful, cloudless Saturday afternoon spent hiking through the North Georgia mountains is my idea of a way to spend a great weekend. 🚶🏻♀️
This was our hike through Blackrock State Park. It was challenging and taxing but boy, did I feel accomplished when I finished those strenuous 7 miles. There's something special about setting a hiking goal and conquering it. I've hiked a lot of miles in my life but unlike my outdoor-loving husband, I've never worn out a pair of hiking boots. 🥾 I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it for myself, but he literally walked the sole right off of his hiking boot. (That's a lot of hiking. 🤣)
Hiking requires fuel. And fuel in the form of delicious, energy giving snacks, is the very best kind. It also helps when that fuel is simple to make and can be tossed in my pack for a quick pick me up during a hike. Hello - Cherry Pie Fruit Bars. These 3 ingredient snacks are just about the most perfect little treat for hikers - and anyone who likes dried fruit bars. 😂🍒
