Yesterday Late Morning
I found a long dirt road paralleling an old irrigation canal. I decided to follow it for about two miles to see where it went.
The trees are following the route of the irrigation canal. The road went as far as I could see.
I'm starting to see flocks of geese which are usually here this time of year. Whenever I hear them honking I get the camera ready. For some reason that seems to attract them closer. Maybe that's wishful thinking, but it seems to work.
The First Snow!I woke up early this morning and saw that it was snowing. It was also seven degrees F outside. "
So, I decided to bundle up and go for a nine mile walk. It didn't start out to be nine miles, but it kind of ended up that way as I kept walking.
Sometimes I feel my footprints in the snow are like graffiti. Maybe I shouldn't make any.
Oh well, in a few hours, the University students will be adding more footprints.
I find it's important not to walk so fast that I perspire when I'm bundled up if I plan on spending time outside when I stop.
Since starting the Pedometer Wars, I've markedly increased my daily steps. Now I'm finding 30,000 steps a day (about 14.5 miles) relatively easy. As I attain the 30,000 step goal each day, I'm finding more efficient ways to reach it. The new ways seem to use less energy than when my goal was 20,000 steps a day. I'll see how it goes with rest days. I haven't taken one in 12 days.
