Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 24-SAD

Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 24-SAD

Day 24 
I said maybe if I looked at summery pictures of my kids it might cheer me up. I found this, and I am cheered. Really, who couldn't be?
This past week, I have been really really tired, almost lethargic. Then I realized, maybe and unbeleivably, I am having a bit of SAD. Me! The promoter of 'go outdoors in February' And then when I gave it some thought, I realized, while I had been outdoors everyday, I hadn't spent a lot of time outdoors. The first year I did the challenge my goal was to spend 2 hours a day outdoors. I'm a long way from that right now, so today, I was outdoors for over 2 hours, yes that was me longboarding through the Junction. I will do it again tomorrow, and hopefully Saturday and Sunday. I'll report back next week, if I'm feeling better. 
In the meantime, have an outdoorsy day.

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.
