My vacations are usually active--or, I make them that way. Luckily, this trip includes lots and lots of hiking. I usually start with a shorter hike in the mornings, followed by a much more strenuous or longer hike in the early afternoon. In between, I may go to a visitor center or some other attraction for a rest. By the time I am back to the campsite, I am not too interested in any other activity. Again, if there is an opportunity to do some calisthenics I will try to do them or if there is an open space for stretching or yoga, great. Otherwise, the hiking maintains both my activity levels and keeps my weight down.
