Happy Trails

Friends and fellow hikers:

After much thought, I’ve decided that I’m going to take a sabbatical on my blog, “Take a Long Hike.” Why? Because, for now, I’ve said all I’ve wanted to say about hiking.

I didn’t want to just disappear from my loyal subscribers. I thank every one of you.

My favorite hiking blog is still  www.SectionHiker.com  I suggest you check out Philip Werner’s blog. He has a lot of hiking experience, and he’s a strong writer.

Happy Trails!

  2. Dear Ray,

    Thank you for your wonderful blog. I learned a great deal about hiking and grew to appreciate the planning, logistics, friendship, consideration for nature and shear adventure of hiking. I looked forward to reading “Take A Hike” each week and will miss it.

    Continued success in your future writing!

    Warm Regards,
