Hiking in the national park near my home is a lot of fun. My friends and I like to go rock climbing and hiking, and sometimes we will take our mountain bikes on the trails as well, but it is a lot more fun to traverse each one of the trails on foot. Hiking the park can be a lot of dangerous fun, so it’s entirely crucial to be prepared. My friends and I make sure that we wear familiar shoes and gear. We also bring safety harnesses and ropes just in case there is some type of accident while we are exploring. My friends and I take recreational marijuana on our hike, but we never smoke marijuana until we reach our destination. It’s a lot of fun to get high and hang out at the reservoir or down by the canyon, but it’s also crucial to get there safely. My friends and I know and understand that it can be undoubtedly dangerous to scale a wall when your depth perception is off. One of the concerns with smoking marijuana is the fact that it makes your senses different! Your taste and smell is different and so is your sense of distance. There were a couple of young kids on the trail last year and they were smoking a marijuana joint near the base of the canyon. They were on their way up and smoked right before they left. I truthfully thought it was pretty dangerous to smoke right before the hike, because the base of the canyon is one of the most difficult parts of the 12 mile trek.
