Day 24: Outdoors even for a little bit

Day 24: Outdoors even for a little bit

Challenger! There is less than a week left! Thank you for all who have come along with the Challenge this year, and all the guest posters. 
Thursday nights I have a very late hockey practice so Friday mornings tend to be a slow go and then I teach a class in the early afternoon. But today was so bright and crisp, that I really wanted to get out in the snow even for a few minutes. Luckily there was snow between the houses that hadn’t been shoveled so I bundled up and headed out to do that. Amazing how even a few minutes of outdoors time can lift my spirit. 
a note about what I'm wearing.

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.
