A Hike For The National Parks


On special holidays or occasions, Apple features a challenge on the Apple Watch. Watch owners can earn special activity awards (badges) by completing the challenge. In the past, Apple has created a challenge for various holidays. For example, they have offered an activity award for New Years, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Mother Day, Women’s day .. and on and on.

This past Sunday they were offering an activity award for National Parks Day. To earn the activity award, you had to run, walk or wheelchair for 3 miles.

Why 3 miles? Well, The distance is the same as the distance of the popular South Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge and back at the Grand Cayon.

For our walk, we hiked along the Miami River. I captured the photo above while we were on that hike.

The second photo is of the badge.
