Hiking and Health

For those of you who ask me how mountain  hiking has effected me  at my age ,
I offer the below news link .

The below link is an Atascadero news article about yours truly , I hope it benefits some of you older athletes . This article is one of two articles published in this paper in 2012 , they were complete with large wilderness photos .
To further inform you senior athletes , I am adding some info the article did not mention , I am 73 years of age , will be 74 this year . I have been injured several times in my life that required hospitalization and therapy . I have had back surgery .
Currently I hike 6 to ten miles daily and occasionally 15 to 18 miles . I hike rain or shine , day or night and I backpack several times yearly . I feel great . I often joke when asked how I feel , If uncle Sam knew how good I feel at my age He would impose a feel good tax on me !
