I am making it official:
I am reestablishing my connection with the Earth.
You read it here first!
After a few short hikes in the Adirondacks, I have decided that after my half marathon, this is going to be my exercise of choice.
I appear to have gotten lost somewhere along the way;
How could I have forgotten how beautiful and grounding it is to explore the outdoors!?
Now, don't get me wrong;
I'm not talking about throwing away my running sneakers just yet...or, dear God, camping.
But, I will definitely be maximizing our time out of doors this summer!
Is there anything as clean as the Adirondack air!?
|I could have sat here for hours...if the bugs hadn't found us!|
|Even the marshes are beautiful!|
|Stupid stump...messing up my reflection shot...|
Still pretty though!
|The men exploring a possible pass to the other side|
|Lost in thought|
|Elias caught a teeny tiny toad and he carried the entire way.|
I can't believe he didn't squish the poor thing!
It was such a lovely day for a walk.
Even though my son made Todd carry him home and exclaimed without remorse "I hate this!"
We will be back!
