Walks Behind the Virtual Hike

I am sure that many of you have seen my Virtual Hike posts. My Virtual Hike started in July of 2017. I had the idea to use how far I walked each day and go on a virtual hike to Yosemite. I then just kept going from there. I have virtually walked all the way to the East Coast and up to Prince Edward Island and am now on my way back.

This post has images of where most of the miles that feed the virtual hike took place. I don’t always have such a nice view as many of my miles are walked after dark.

I hope you enjoy my Virtual Hike posts.
