Crafting Walks

I have declared April 1-October 31 to be a season of being outside. I am really dedicated to this. Every day, I want to be outside walking or exploring, even if it’s just for a small portion of a rainy day.

I suppose at this stage, I’m a bit of a local walking connoisseur, though there’s still so much for me to explore. I’ve walked the entire Border to Border trail, a 70+ mile trail that weaves through our county. I have also visited all 163 parks in my town. (And in alphabetical order — because why not? 🙂

As I plan walks during this Season of Being Outside, I’ve realized that I can craft walks particularly. Twice this week, I had walks planned with loved ones, and I said, “Where do you want to go today?” They weren’t sure, so I said, “What type of place do you want to walk in today? Is there anything you’d like to experience?”

“Take me somewhere that has a canopy.” Then we did!

“Take me somewhere that has a bridge over water.” Then we did!

I think this is a fun game. 🙂 So if you’re local to me and want to make requests, let’s take a walk. I’m here for this.
