Hiking on a Winter Day

When I first cleared the trail and hiked it regularly, it took me 45 minutes.  Had a guest who did it in 18 minutes, but I didn’t time him!  Today is took me almost an hour and a half – that’s what happens when you get a little older and very lazy!  Time to turn back one of those clocks and start walking/hiking/running – whatever it takes to get the legs in shape again.

But what a beautiful day!  Warm, sunny, absolutely bright blue sky, not a breath of wind or bird song!  Just my heavy breathing from climbing up the mountain.  Even stopped a couple of times to rest on an old stump.  But what views from the ridge!  I could see all the way into North Carolina and Virginia – hard to see this view in summer when the trees are covered with leaves.  Which is why I like hiking at this time of year when the weather cooperates.
