This spring, everyone's eager to get outside - and vacation. But given physical distancing, and our need for fresh air, hiking has never looked better as an option for a spring or summer adventure. Tune in to Labrador Morning on Wednesday, May 13th to hear some tips for longer distance and multi-day hikes with journalist Malone Mullin and Nature NL President Laura King.
