I rarely hike with humans, preferring a K9 partner instead.
But there are a few friends with which I enjoy sharing the wilderness experience, Sandy for instance. I find it impossible to hike with her and not feel blessed by the experience. We have laughed, mumbled and stumbled through more than a few hikes. 😀
