Hiking for 10.5 Miles!

Today I was back at it and went back to the same Black Diamond Mines Regional Park to do more hiking. My goal is to hike everything it has to offer and it offers 60+ miles of trails.

The whole band are great guys and they are like brothers. My heart ached for everyone involved. After digesting the news that Brandon had passed away I wondered what would happen to one of my favorite bands. Would they go on? Would that be too much for them to bear? I’ll be honest – I had a feeling they would regroup and come back, but...
