Have you ever talked to someone online a couple times, and felt an instant connection? That's what happened with Kim. We met on my facebook page, talked a couple times, saw each other from a distance at the Indy Women's Half and waved, and that was it. Yet I knew she was someone I would have a blast hanging out with! So, we set a hiking date in Brown County. She's a runner too, and is training for her first full, the Chicago Marathon!
Their longest trail was a 5.5 mile, out and back. So that's the one we decided on.
It ended up being almost 10 miles because we may have taken a wrong turn or something...
It was very hilly and we even got rained on a little bit, which felt great.

We said our goodbyes and I headed back home. I decided to drive back into the park one more time, just to drive around.
Kim had told me about a fire tower there, but we decided not to stop because our legs were already pretty sore!
I wasn't even thinking about it, until I drove right up to it. I thought well, I'm here, I might as well climb it!
It's 180 steps, and in the old days it was used to look for forest fires, because you can see almost the whole park from up there.
It was a little windy and shaky up there, so I didn't stay long!
