I was recently checking out Linda's post at It All Started with Paint about where she walks and then I saw a similar post on KariAnne's blog at Thistlewood Farm. So now I'm doing a post about places I walk. I think this clearly establishes me as a trend follower. It turns out there is a Walk it. Pin it. Win it. contest going on through April 25th. It involves Pinterest and Twitter though. Since I haven't become Twiterpated yet and I'm still pinning on my Pinterest diapers you'd better check out their posts (linked above) if you are interested.
But it really got me thinking about why I don't take better advantage of all the great places I have to walk. If you step just outside my door and look right you see the beautiful farm scene above.
Walk to toward the pasture and turn right again and you're on this path. My twin nephews are taking advantage of a nice Sunday twilight. Their older brother has run on ahead and is probably at the lake by now checking out the jumping fish. It's just a ten minute walk .
The path was an old railroad track that has been converted into a walking path. If you go in the opposite direction of the lake you can walk for 26 miles (thats a marathon folks) to the most amazing old mining town. I only know this because I've seen the maps and sadly, not because I've walked that way.
There are miles and miles of pastures and cows, cattails and little streams.
Well you just never know what you are going to find. You've got to keep in mind that horses use this path too.
So what am I doing? I'm sitting in front of a computer writing a post about walking that's what. But the day isn't over yet and I intend to get out there. Just as soon as I return a few emails, and finish editing some photos and maybe text my sister-in-law about how cute the boys are!
