Take a Hike!

Merv at the trail's head
One of the keys to the long-term survival of a transplant recipient is regular daily exercise and springtime offers a wonderful opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy nature. This past weekend I went hiking along the Mill Race Trail in St. Jacobs, ON. Not only did I feel terrific after the hike but the whole outing was very enjoyable.

The shady trail winds between two rivers and wildlife abounds. I saw a huge muskrat, a ruffed grouse, hundreds of ducks and geese plus numerous species of birds. I also got to meet some very nice people. Hikers tend to be very friendly.

I can highly recommend taking a hike as not only a great way to get in your daily exercise but also as an enjoyable experience.
