Around the city and neighborhoods at night.

Along a river/lake walk. Park trails. There is a trail walk at Beacon Rock in Eastern WA. I was "huffing & puffing" it up the trail when this elderly lady (85+) and her daughter started down the trail. All of a sudden I knew I would make it up that trail IF I had to crawl partway! It still "floors" me to think of the energy and health this lady had! (And, unlike me, she wasn't even out of breath at all!!) If the weather's bad, I will go to a mall or warehouse-type store to walk.
If I don't want to drive anywhere I walk in the neighborhood. If It's dark I stay on the Cul-de Sac ( it's .25 mile loop). I am so blessed to have atleast 3 walking tracks really close. At my inlaws there is a cemetary across the street I like to walk .
I believe I will try to visit walking tracks in new places when we travel!

I love walking around the city where I live. It's a medieval city with hundreds of tiny old shops selling everything you can think of. We even have a shop that sells only rope, and another that sells only sieves. There's always so much to see and smell (there are dozens of coffee grinder places and sweet shops) that I never notice time passing as I walk. Some of the buildings date back to the 10th century, it's easy to feel like I'm in another world. And the streets are designated for pedestrians, not cars, so it's easy and safe.

I have a standard 3.5 mile circle out the front door and around a lake and golf course. Variety would be nice, but driving someplace to walk takes more time.
