Horn Hill Bike Path X2-Walking Meditation

“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.”

-Nhat Hanh
“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
-Nhat Hanh
“Walk so that your footprints bear only the marks of peaceful joy and complete freedom. To do this you have to learn to let go. Let go of your sorrows, let go of your worries. That is the secret of walking meditation.”
-Nhat Hanh

 

Last summer I did a whole bunch of hikes from a book called, Circuit Hikes In Harriman by Don Weise. Today (4/11/17), I was going to do a pretty lengthy hike but when my daughter asked if she could go hiking again today (WOW!!), I decided to do this relatively easy loop in Harriman State Park.

Once again, the difference in what the woods look like from season to season is truly amazing. Five and a half miles later, I think that I got some pretty decent photos.

The Appalachian Trail crosses this trail at two points during the hike.

As you hike along the bike path, the Ramapo Dunderberg Trail crosses its path. Here are some nice stone steps to help you on your way.

      You are welcome! I was a little surprised myself that she wanted to go out two days in a row!! As a matter of fact, we are probably doing another hike tomorrow. Since she is a teenager, I have to take these moments when I can!!! I am enjoying every moment.

        Yes you do! How blessed you are! Nature is the perfect location for ‘bonding’, I feel. And for getting to know oneself more. Enjoy your time. I am very happy for you…for you both! 😀
