Why do people hike? Is it simply a holdover from our wanderings when we were hunting and gathering? After all, humans and prehumans didn’t exactly have mass transit. Walking was a necessity. If a tribe wanted to relocate to greener pastures, there was only one way to do it.
Even if part of our desire to walk the Earth is hardwired, there’s also the obvious — the beauty of Mother Nature. There’s a simplicity in putting everything needed to live on the back and walking into the woods to commune with the surroundings.
