On Tuesday I went for a hike with my close friend Kat in the Long Island Pine Barrens. We came out covered in ticks despite our bug spray with deet but we still had an amazing time. It's hard to find hiking trails in the land of suburbia that aren't paved or swarming with people. This particular trail was peaceful and we could almost block out the sounds of the passing traffic. I took a few pictures and thought I'd share them with you.
