Day 2-Take a long distance picture

Day 2-Take a long distance picture

 A good friend pointed out that I hadn't given any instructions on what to do once she went outside and took a picture. Oops, sorry. So here it is in 4 steps:
1. read the days newsletter and photo prompt.
2. go outside
3. take picture
4. upload your picture to your facebook and Instagram with #outdoorseveryday
see, so easy and so fun.

Today's  picture is of the mountain I spent my childhood looking at. As I walked around the park, and looked up on the mountain, I reflected on how my outlook in life had been affected by looking out at the beauty of this mountain*. I have always been a person who needs a lot of space-I don't like walls, I don't like closed doors, pretty much I resist restrictions in any form.
Perhaps it all started looking up at the wild woods I spent my childhood exploring.

Until tomorrow-,
Have an outdoorsy day.

*okay-it may be a big hill, but it was a mountain to us.

My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. 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.
