One of my favorite places to go is Eric's family's cabin in Indiana. It's tucked away in the trees next to the perfect little lake. It's super cozy, we fish and swim, and there's normally a puzzle to be completed (I love puzzles). The last time Eric and I visited, his parents took us to turkey run state park. We found ourselves climbing icy walls and hiking through snowy passes... I was so excited I got the hiccups. It's one of my favorite hikes I've ever been on, part because of the company and part because of the beautiful scenery.
favorite hiking gear: merrell boots, comfy flannel (with a few layers underneath), and levis.
