"take a hike," they said

Well, actually no one did. But it has become a tradition to go on a hike before my birthday. Last year we went to the Ledges on a very snowy day. This year I couldn't have asked for a better day for my pre-birthday hike! It was such a balmy 60+ degrees and sunshiny and at some point, I had to slip my arms out of my long-sleeved shirt and wore the sleeves dangling like an extra pair of arms. 

Burchfield Park--new to me--was an easy eight-mile loop and scenic all the way through.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUUUUUU
What a gorgeous day for a hike. I had to do some mental imagining about the shirt. Was it a button up shirt? How did it stay on your body otherwise? Must be a button up shirt. Why am I obsessing over this?
I hope you have a wonderful day - the colours in your photo are gorgeous.
