“While you’ll feel compelled to charge forward it’s often a gentle step back that will reveal to you where you and what you truly seek.”
― Rasheed Ogunlaru
“How weird it was to drive streets I knew so well. What a different perspective.”
To change things up a little and get a new perspective on a hike that I’ve done many, many times, I reversed the route the route on the Fahnestock Special. For many years I have done this circular clockwise route in the same direction because it offers a hill that gives your legs, heart and mind a workout. The reverse route has a couple of very short climbs, but nothing like what is offered in the other direction.
Anyway, taking a new way did make the hike seem a lot quicker than it usually is and I did get a much different perspective than what I am used to seeing.
