Welcome to Hiking Scenery

Ben Lomond Track, Queenstown

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”

― Jack Kerouac

This Jack Kerouac quote sums up how I’ve come to feel about my hiking. Although I very much enjoy my work, and a freshly mowed lawn is rather satisfying, the most vivid memories that remain with me are those of the wild scenery I’ve encountered on many walks over the years, almost all of them accessible day walks. This blog is dedicated to that scenery, and to those walks. Cheers, Edward Hathway
