During my trip last month to Big Bend my trusty old hiking boots of the past ten years walked their final mile. They now have their eternal resting place along the foothills to Mule Ears Peak (video of services shared at the bottom of this post). So with a new pair of boots to carry me on my adventures needed, I recenently cashed in my REI dividends and made the purchase. Today was their first day to have a trail test and I couldn’t think of a better place than my favorite Texas state park, Lost Maples SNA.
It was unseasonably cold today, but with my new boots laced up I took on the West Loop Trail. I am happy to report they performed quite well and I didn’t suffer any hot spots or uncomfortable pinches, creases, etc. As ususal I had my camera with me and took some snaps throughout the day (highlights shared below) – hope you enjoy!
