Welcome to the Lazy Ass Hiking blog. As the name implies, my fellow hikers and I enjoy hiking at a nature loving, picture taking slow poke pace, usually well after the crack of dawn. It’s not about being out of shape or doing just the easy hikes. It’s more about hiking for enjoyment whether we’re on an easy two mile walk or trekking 10 plus miles to bag a mountain peak. This style of hiking is not for everyone because it tends to tie up the whole day and sometimes a specific hike or conditions require that even us slowpokes adopt a regular hiking pace whether we like it or not. Either way, I invite you to check out the hike descriptions and hike reports for the various types of hikes, from easy to very strenuous.
