I love being out of the humidity and heat of NYC in the summer and back to hiking the Smoky Mountains. I also love biking the 11 mile loop at Cades Cove. It is without a doubt the good life. I have had so much fun with friends from NYC who came to stay with me last week, and we made the most of every gorgeous day. While here, I am hiking and biking once a week until I return to my daily walks and bike rides in NYC. I thank God every single day for my health and for the joy of getting to do what I love in life.
