Long Walking

The walks are quite long these days.

And they are not done on the nice road or pavement.

We are back to walking in the woods.

We do not walk on trails either, because hunting season has begun in our area - and the deer do not stay on trails.

We walk slowly at times - trying to be really quiet on those crunchy leaves all over the forest floor.

There is no such thing as level ground in the woods.

There are rocks and roots and slippery pine needles also - all there to trip you up if you are not paying attention.

Bending low under some branches and stretching up to others as supports gives one an all-over work out in addition to the walking.

I still only count the steps each day - so all this extra is a great bonus!
