Repost:Day 23, 2023 Something amazing happened.

Yesterday may have been the greatest day of my life! Okay, I'm probably exaggerating but something truly amazing did happen. 

On Wednesdays I walk with Cathy, and yesterday we decided to walk through High Park. It was a beautiful snowy morning, the temperature was perfect, the scenery beautiful. We had a lovely walk, while I snapped lots of pictures to use for the blog. 

When we got back to the car, and were brushing off the newly fallen snow; I looked up, and this is what I saw!

They were walking the Llamas!

My whole life I never saw anything like that. It was Awesome! 

Of course I had to run over and snap lots of pictures, interview the zookeeper and ask the volunteers tons of questions. The llamas were oblivious, while they munched on some evergreen needles...who knew!

So if this isn't proof, or inspiration, or incentive for you to get outdoors everyday, I don't know what more I can do. Because-there are amazing things to be found outdoors. Send us over a picture of one, and that's today's challenge ( I understand the likelihood of your amazing thing being as amazing as llama walking zookeepers in High Park is slim, but I'm sure you can find something great too)



Until tomorrow

Have and outdoorsy day.

I would like to talk about something I witnessed in town over the last several weeks. As I mentioned previously, we had a Polar Vortex. It was too cold to walk to the grocery store, let alone just sit outside all day. Which is what a member of this town had been doing for months.

My Winter Walks
My Winter Walks

I am just back from a walk along the country road where I live, a road bordered by fields and stands of trees. 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.
