Welcome to Hiking Scenery

“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. Hiking Scenery is a blog is dedicated to that scenery, and to those walks. Apart from the photos, I include basic details of the walks and some links to more detailed track notes when available. And you can always contact me for more details or ideas for walks. Cheers, Edward Hathway

The Hiking Scenery Instagram feed:

Here’s a taster of my photos from the @hikingscenery Instagram feed. I’ve not mastered the art of social media yet, so I still have only about 3% as many followers as my friend’s dog. Follow me if you haven’t already! 🙂 Note that I’m still progressively posting on my walks in reverse chronological order (and new ones as I do them), so you might see some photos on Instagram that I haven’t yet put on the blog. Give me about another year to catch up (that’ll be 2019).

I’ve now posted all walks from my last trip to Queenstown in December/January, and have begun posting on walks from my trip to Tasmania (via Victoria) in January/February 2019. You can see some of these photos on the Hiking Scenery Facebook page
