Walking the Trail

*I know my regular visitors might think this is turning in to a hiking blog but I promise there are lots of different articles lined up!  Coming in the next few weeks:  Colorado Gold; 3 Days in Colorado Springs; a review of Boulder Ice Cream; a little waxing poetic about doing things on my own; and more.

“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

The cooler temperatures brought on by the fall months have kept us outside, away from the house and the computer.  It has been worth every extra late evening I had to spend to get my house back in order and take care of school and work obligations. My obsession with taking pictures of the trail is only getting worse.  My love for trail pictures is beginning to overtake my Instagram feed!

The trail makes me think of what is to come around the corner.  Looking back makes me think of how far I have come.   The trail and what it means is different for everyone.

    What a beautiful hike you did. Hiking is a great activity and the pace is slow enough to have time to think and reflect, as well as enjoy the surroundings thoroughly….

    I LOVE all the trail images and autumn is great time to get outdoors with the kids. I hadn’t read that earlier post about how far you’ve come and just read it now, beautiful! Hope you are enjoying all the outdoorsy activities, we are loving our outdoor lifestyle in Norway 🙂

    Great photos! Colorado is an area that we have yet to explore. We are from the Pacific Northwest and do a lot of hiking and camping here. We also did a lot overseas. Being a Boy Scout family, we get outdoors as much as we can. We will have to check-out your neck of the woods someday. Thanks!
