Half of Team Heimann went on a first training hike today on the Appalachian trail near Greenwood Lake in NY. Cousin Jeff Oppenheim and his friend Tor, both experienced hikers, led us on this first trek, 8 glorious miles out in nature. Jeff and Tor shared lots of valuable information about what we should bring on our trip and how to read the markings on the trail. We also learned that the kids' hiking poles don't work - good to learn that now! And Jonah learned how much fun we can have just walking out in nature!
Most of the trail was covered in snow, which added to the beauty. Looking forward to the Heimann gals joining us on our next training hike!
