The Palmer View Blog has some advice to help you take a hike this month. There’s nothing like taking a refreshing hike on a hot summer’s day. Summer is the perfect time to get out of the house and enjoy the fresh air! We recommend using the warm summer days to enjoy the sunshine before August is through.
