It had been longer than necessary, and hopefully will not be too long before the next one. A walk through the fields, into the woods and across a creek are good for the body, heart & soul. This trail is about a ten minute drive from the house and many more miles away from it all.
Winter hikes for me are rare without reason. The choices include snowshoes or hope for a decent boot track. The coin toss chose hope for a decent boot track. And it was good enough. The snow was much less than knee deep, so there was no post-holing.
There are unspoken expectations with every hike. Most point towards the next hike and involve expressing best intentioned rationalizations that center on getting out more often. To prevent jinxing, these expectations will remain silent until proven by actual activity. Two words ~ Create Opportunities.
The FitBit data from this hike includes: 5,497 steps, 25 stairs and 2.45 miles. Good to know, should it be tracked via a spreadsheet?
