Take A Hike
We, my husband, dog and cat, finally got to the property we own in Goldendale. It’s a marvelous place for peace and quiet. There are a lot of walking trails available on the adjacent acreage. We recently found out we have 3 bears in the neighborhood.
Yesterday, I took a hike. I wanted to see a paw print or maybe a shadow moving in the trees. A friend went with me so I could show him some new trails. He brought his GPS so he could mark interesting places. I find GPS fascinating in that there is so much information available to those who know how to use it. My friend said that there are some units that are very basic and easy to use. People even use them to find their car in the mall parking lot. But I digress.
We ended up hiking 3+ miles. It was a great trek, but we didn’t see a trace of a bear print. We did hear wild turkeys and jumped up a bunch of cows.
I was exhausted by the end of our walk and my left leg was starting to drag and my arms were shaking. It was time to take more pills. When I’m walking in the woods, it doesn’t feel like exercise. I can’t wait for the leaves to start turning. There are a lot of oak trees and shrubs that will be so colorful. I’ll push it again and make the walk because if you don’t use it you loose it.
