Bridget Carlson hikes in Dana Peak Park on Aug. 5 with Tammy Hiatt and Teresa Lewellen.

HARKER HEIGHTS — It’s before 8 a.m. on a Tuesday, and the pervasive Central Texas heat is just beginning to settle in.

But Bridget Carlson is undeterred. For the next nine months, she will hit the trail at Dana Peak Park by 6:30 a.m. every weekday and hike 2 miles. She will resume her trek that evening at a local park, and when the weekend finally rolls around, Carlson will embark upon a more arduous hike, ranging anywhere from 8 to 15 miles.

I have had the RSS rear d come out and hike with me as part of their PT and to log miles. I am more than happy to do the same with other units that may want to participate. I also had Central Bell County Fire and Rescue out hiking and logging miles. I can take you on a short easy 2 mile hike or a more rugged 15 mile.
