Ok folks. Your writer here is 9000 feet up. Took an amazing aerial tram up 2000 feet. I did it. Me. Phobic of most things me. Who knew ? Maybe the less stress of teaching part time is helping! Rocky Mountain high for sure!
I am still dealing with the altitude. DIZZY dizzy dizzy. But look at this gorgeous country!Delightful to see.
So needed a nature walk today! Couldn’t wait to post these pictures, so I created this blog from my phone. I am learning. Enjoy, and thanks for reading and viewing.
Just phone photos while walking…
Love trees. Hidden back there? A goose on a dam. The goose is there every time I walk this path. Nest?
I won’t be walking this path until autumn again since the skeeters now own it. (Water there.). So I walk this path September- first skeeter bite.
I went without trees in my life for too long. Never again, if I can help it. I was surrounded by trains, concrete, and sidewalks without trees for way too long! It’s good to see a resurgence of love for trees.
So much beauty. Know how you sometimes remember where you were when you see a photo? I remember what I was thinking when I took this photo. I thought, is THIS what I’ve been missing for so long? As a child I was a veteran sky watcher/sunsets/sunrises/clouds already, then I lost it as I became a work, work, work type of person. Is this what I’ve been missing? Just some phone photos.
Well she told me not to and I did it anyway… time to listen to the physical therapist! I will get back to this and improve. But she TOLD me not to do a timed walk where I would feel pressured to keep up with those could can go longer and faster. Did I listen? Nope! Ice and regrets today, but shall persevere.
Sorry for not listening, Dr. A! Or… for at least not being able to say–I need to stop.
When I joined a walking in the woods group, I was pretty sure there would be both walking and the forest/ woods. What I did not count on was the ferocious walking these ladies do! I had to stop twice and then met them in the coffee shop where we stop after they walk–I’m already there. Great encouragement for me to walk more! I do enjoy exploring the woods, trees, plants by myself, but I don’t actually exercise much that way. This way? I am HUSTLING to keep up. There is room for tree-shopping and fast walking. I am not quite a fast walker nor a long walker yet! Let’s see what the loop walking does to me tomorrow!
I cannot imagine living away from trees, the woods, nature. A few years ago, our area’s ash trees suffered from Emerald Ash Bore, and most of the ash trees had to be removed. I hadn’t realized how much each tree added to the absolute joy of my natural world–until they had to be removed. I dearly enjoy the privilege of being able to walk in nature in all seasons, and don’t take any trees for granted!
