Animated Street View
The route continues along Route 12 in Idaho. The road is next to the Lochsa River. Lochsa means "heavy waters" and there are rapids in many places.
The shoulder is narrow with some fallen rocks on it. When there are rock faces, it's safer to walk with traffic than to get hit in the head.
This leg completed segment 31 and I filled in another circle. Soon, I'll be in Montana
28 Day Challenge
Sarah Arrow invited me to join a 30 day blogging challenge. If you are interested, you can join the challenge here on Facebook. Each day, she would sent tips to my email and Kevin Arrow would give awards along the way.
I am not an expert blogger, so I'm not going to give tips about blogging. About three weeks ago, I started a 28 day walking challenge. Since I am an expert on Road Walking, I'll write about that.
The walking challenge was all about forming a routine I could repeat every day. It had to be simple, repeatable and quick.
There are four goals on my walk: Walk, get an idea, take pictures, write a title. The order isn't important.
My first mistake was calling this a challenge. Challenge means hard, and I had a hard time the first week.
Finally, I decided it was NOT a challenge. It is merely a 28 day cycle. I learned to focus on each day and it became almost too easy.
I realized there were four steps to walking and three steps to the blog. The top where I say a few words about the virtual hike. The middle where I write on the topic of the day, and the bottom where I write about the walk itself.
The whole process of walking and blogging is a repeatable routine. I did play with formatting on the blog, and I decided simple is best for me. It's easy and quick.
No, 56 days isn't enough either. Once I master the cycle, I'll continue it every day. There won't be any hint of a challenge. It will be my daily routine.
I was a little slow this morning during my morning walk. I didn't feel tired. For some reason an amble seemed more fun.
