It's Elise here and I am going to tell you about my all-time favorite year round outdoor activity, hiking. I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place, and even luckier that my house is nestled right up against Mount Olympus. This puts me within minutes of dozens of hikes. The best part of hiking, is that it is a free activity that the whole family can participate in.
