Day 17: My lesson today

Day 17: My lesson today

I had to walk down to see Phillipa at her photography studio in the Junction, and I thought because it was above freezing I didn't need my shells; or my hat; or my neckwarmer; or my mittens. Well, by the time I got down to Phillipa's I was quite frozen. 

Luckily when it was time to go home, Bobby came and met me and brought me a hat and neckwarmer, and my walk home was much more comfortable. 

Lesson learned. I actually feel quToday for one of the few times this winter I was cold. How you may ask, was I cold when it was +2. Well, because I didn't dress properly! How else. Ironic yes it was.ite foolish, being the spouter of all things "there's no cold day just bad gear"  Well I am not going out without my snow-shells again before May.

My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
