Finally got myself out of the house and motivated to walk on the first day of 2010.
About a mile from where I live in the boulders there is a gated access road into a someday housing development on the eastern flanks of the Weaver Mountains.
View east towards town
After climbing over the gate I can follow several miles of semi-graded dirt roads or take off across the landscape on animal trails.
I heard more birds than I saw, scared up a rabbit, spotted a few lizards scurrying into cracks in the rocks and saw the tracks and scat of coyote, deer, javelina, cattle, and maybe a bobcat.
Yes, a pond in the desert
I really do need to get outside more often and walk in nature. I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, yet it does seem like a good time to make some changes. Karen at FabGrandma’s got me to thinking about goals for this year.
