I believe in the power of action. What better way to show you mean what you say by doing an act that demonstrates your commitment. As a woman on International Women's Day, why not spend the day taking care of Mother Earth?
One of the things I've written bit about is the role that solo hiking plays in life for me, but I haven't ever really gone deeper on it. It’s personal. Sharing that internal dialog lays bare the internal struggles between doing what feels good and what is right...
One of the best gifts I've ever given myself is the gift of membership in Women Who Hike (WWH). I may have started my hiking life with a fine group of Boy Scouts, but I've found that these gals are the most giving, encouraging group of fellow hikers I could ask for.
First up for 2020 - a First Day hike at Clifton E. French Regional Park (aka. French Park). As I watched the sunrise while getting ready to head to the park, I was greeted with the most beautiful array of pinks, oranges and a bit of purple. Watching those colors unfold reminded me that, while I’m not a morning person, that opening myself to possibility for the beauty in the day would be a fine way to start the year.
I guess I wasn't done hiking in 2019 after all. Here is a look at my final hike of the year on the blog.
