Some hikers love hiking so much they decide to get a tattoo.

Hiking, we think you’ll agree, is a seriously great way to take yourself away from the hustle and bustle of modern living. It’s an activity that gets you back to the very heart of nature; a hobby that allows participants to experience big adventures at a leisurely walker’s pace.

For the record, these people often have a deep-seated love of trousers with pockets.
