When my family goes hiking and we reach a viewpoint, my husband and I always yell, “View hallo!” I think we got this term from a Winnie-the-Pooh movie but I couldn’t find the reference when I looked for it online. I did, however, discover that we’re misusing the expression. Apparently fox hunters holler, “view halloo” when they see their prey break from cover. I like my version better. It means I’ve found a view.
Starting with a hike in Glacier National Park, I’m launching a weekly Wednesday series on view finding, those moments when I take a deeper breath and savor the sights, then fumble for my camera. That’s if I remember the camera. Whether you’re running, hiking, biking, four-wheeling or skiing, I believe the view is always worth finding.

Does anyone know what cartoon character said “View Halloo”?
Was it Tigger?
