WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER

Thanks to Friend Beth’s invitation I walked/climbed 6.6 miles/1162 feet yesterday. Now granted I wasn’t appropriately grateful on some of those long uphill stretches but nine hours in bed and a pain pill later I am ready to offer up an earnest thank you. One of those goldy fall days, nice people, such a much better way to spend a day off than binging on netflix (really!) Here’s a two-part photo album: The Big Picture and Up Close and Personal:

BIG PICTURE: SANDIAS WITH FALL COLOR FADING INTO AUTUMN BROWNS AND GRAYS.

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL:

Elena Gallegos Open Space

I have found my place in the foothills. And it’s only been 33 years since my last visit–which is the next story. But for now, I’m thrilled and relieved to have found a place I will love to walk and walk and walk near my new home. Just a few starter photos.

WEATHER

I now live much closer to the mountains and there is more WEATHER up here. Really. Higher altitude, closer to the mountains, up high enough to see the inspiring space of the high desert.  I didn’t think I would like it; in fact I might love it.

Walk Abouts & Drive Abouts is a renewal. A previous blog called Road Trips now turned photography blog for all manner of getting around. Preferably with something photogenic in view. All these blogs replacing all my pretty-covered, college-lined notebooks. Well except for a Moleskine and a Diary and another daily journal and my Daytimer. Because…blogs have pictures.
