    5. Andy Rooney on Enjoying the Journey 

    We love hiking long miles to reach the top of a mountain with an epic view, but really we usually are only at the top for a fraction of the hike. The long miles leading to the destination are where we make our best memories, share the best stories, and see the most wildlife. Spring is a great time to enjoy every mile of a hike, because the mountains begin to fill with wildflowers and wildlife, giving you plenty to enjoy on the way to the mountain top.
