Chris and I went hiking in the Palisades Interstate Park, which is a large area that ranges from Fort Lee all the way up to the state of NY. We are new to hiking so we picked a moderate trail (easy was for kids). Saturday's weather was perfect...not too hot and there was a nice breeze. Also, the trail that we picked was very shady. The scenery was nice except for the murky muddy waters of the Hudson River.
I bought wasabi peas, trail mix, Cliff bars, and dried fruit from Trader Joe's and packed frozen bottles of water. The trail was maybe 4-5 miles and took us 3 hours to hike because we kept stopping to eat the wasabi peas lol.

The last half mile was just a rocky road of pain lol.
After hike feast
Red leaf lettuce and peppers
I had a great time hiking! We were pretty noob and didn't bring bug spray (because Chris said he would...and he forgot to bring it) and I got the biggest bug bite on the back of my leg. :(
We might go again next week!
