Day 2 Forest Exploration!

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Hope you enjoyed your rest under the windmill blades after today's exploring Pixies, because tomorrow we're exploring the second half of the Forest!

emoticonTHURSDAY TNT
Foot traffic to the hills has been limited lately and far too much MOSS is covering the trail! Time to KICK IT UP for a notch for TNT Thursday!! Our journey will take you from your home in the Low Lands to High in the Hills! The air is refreshing and the sun shines bright here, but it's quite a journey with some obstacles along the way!

Take a moment before hitting the trail to admire the strength of the TREES...trunks strong and sturdy reaching towards the sky!

Leaving the chopped trees creates a hazard...We'd better pick them up and clear the trail!

The hike from here is all up hill and the slope can be slippery! Be sure to watch your footing as you STEP UP the pace!
emoticon **Complete 500 Step Ups (with up, up, down, down being 1 rep)

We've reached the top of the hill where views are spectactular! No better place than to become ONE WITH NATURE...absorbing the SUN'S positive energy and collecting POWER from the strength of the Forest!
