“After a day’s walk, everything has twice its usual value.”
– G.M. Trevelyan
It took a couple of days but today was noticeably cooler than the last three or four. When I started out at just around 6:00 am it was a nice cool 59 degrees with no real humidity. I decided to take the Green trail to the yellow trail back out to the parking lot. All told, it was a nice easy four miles. I’m still not at 100% yet so once again I walked at a slower pace than I usually would and took in everything around me.
I am finding that I actually prefer the slower pace because it allows me to better clear my mind. I do have to still pay attention to my surroundings so I don’t have a repeat of last summer, but walking slower gives me a better sense of what I’m doing, or at least trying to do.
When I stopped for a quick rest and some water, I found myself staring at this log. I have no idea why, it just had me thinking.
Even with the lack of rain, the woods are still a vibrant green.
But for how long?
