W^2 – evening hike

W^2 or W squared for Wordless Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Herrick Lake Forest Preserve, Wheaton, IL September 7, 2021 6:21 PM

Tuesday afternoon strong storms passed through the area. My classroom weather station registered 2.27 cm of precipitation, a little less than an inch, but at home – none. Once the storm passed it was beautiful, so Fern and I went for an early evening hike. Herrick Lake is a favorite hiking spot of ours with some elevation change, forest, and prairie with a little bit of wetlands mixed in. The two of us made hay while the sun shined and it was a good hike. The sun set over the prairie as we rounded our halfway point. Making the Days Count, one day at a time, hiking to move and moving to live.

What do you enjoy about a hike or a walk?

  1. I’m rather for walks, maybe because I associate hiking with ‘labouring’…. maybe I’m wrong as English is not my first language.
    Hero Husband might be more of a hiker, he’s walking fast, has long legs and I’m hopping behind him, always quickly falling back a few meters and to aggrevate the situation always ready to take a quick photo here and there.
    So we’ve agreed that he does his thing and I do mine. I’m wandering with wide open eyes and heart, my smartphone snapping and he’s ‘running’ off to make his body work out a bit and everybody is happy.

Thanks for visiting MtDC. How are YOU Making YOUR Days Count?
