Rambling Over Coffee: To Hike or Not to Hike, That Is the Question

This morning as I'm sitting here finishing my second cup of coffee, and waiting to let the dogs back in from going 'out' to do their business, I'm pondering my morning schedule.

I have an appointment I have to be at between 11:30 - 12:00 today that is about 30 minutes away, and it happens to be in the direction of a state park I often stop by to do some quick hiking and just enjoy the views.

However, although they are both kinda-sorta in the same direction, they aren't.  If I was to put a compass down on a map, they would both be roughly northeast, but are about 45 degrees from each other.  I would have to allow for a 45 minute drive to get from one to another....  which means I'd have to hurry and get dressed for the hike and leave now, if I am to allow enough time to drive to the location to hike for a bit, and still make my 11:30-12:00 ish meeting.

Decisions, decisions!

While I ponder for a minute (while I let the dogs back in and get them breakfast) I'll leave my readers with some photos of the rock cliffs, the hiking trail and the view.  Incidentally, although it's officially December, today promises to be in the low 60's I think, and sunny.  Which would be an awesome hiking day... but I would be rushed... and the 11:30-12:00 meeting would be hanging over my head and possibly making me not enjoy the hike and 'relax' like I want to as I would be concerned about my schedule and not running behind.  Gah.
