LAZAROW WORLD HIKE-ABOUT
Argentina: Iguaza Falls, The Devil's Throat. (What a place!)
'WHAT IN THE WORLD IS HIKE ABOUT?'
Hike-about is an adventure that commenced June 2010. After storing our household movables, ridding ourselves of a house but retaining our 'home' together, we set off with the purpose of hiking in different parts of the world, not forgetting the home country, the USA.
Our primary focus is hiking to mountain peaks but any challenging hike will do just fine. Extended stays enable us to enjoy and experience living in various places amongst differing cultures. Hike-about has evolved into a way of life. It's also a process of discovery, both the world and ourselves.
We work and live 'on the road' but return to the city in which our grandchildren reside, every couple of months. This provides us the wonderful opportunity to be with them as well as a child or two, even three and of course, friends.
By December 2020, the blog contained over 1,200 hikes, each a set of pictures with stories and anecdotes from the trails. An index to the right allows the viewer to identify earlier experiences.
Finally, we are often asked about the journey's end. Our reply, as accurate as we can state, is: "When we are either forced to cease through health issues or the enjoyment level no longer reaches our aspirations, we will hang up the boots."
Whereas we continue to update the blog regularly, we no longer circulate email notifications.

After the hike, we absorbed the refreshing sights below.
Part way up, the peak is behind the highpoint.
Still a bit of low cloud cover but insufficient to capture the beauty of the previous week when the fires and thick cloud provided amazing colors and formations.
Easy, well-marked snaking trails not without snakes.
This is an approach from another trailhead. We'll go around the current summit and head to the peak behind.
Having a whale of time. (A little obvious).
