I am in the mountains and we live on a circle that goes straight up then straight down, then straight up again. I pass babbling streams, interesting wild flowers, and lots of horses. Sometimes I push my cats in their stroller. It is only a little over a mile, but with all the up and down it takes me almost an hour to walk and I feel like it was at least 5 miles. LOL

When I'm walking I count cats and how many times my dog stops to smell the flowers. She shoves her nose straight into any blooming flower she finds..

Today was only 1 cat (it was raining heavily) and 2 flower sniffs.

Was on vacation yesterday and walked my favorite vacation walk up a red rock canyon along a creek bed. It is a designated walking trail and there were many walking the trail, but it was so nice and fun.

I've been trying to walk on trails though the bush, so I have been seeing lots of trees, shrubs and ferns. I saw a small waterfall today!

I'm allergic to most sunscreens, so I wear a wide brimmed hat and long sleeves. I've had skin cancer, so I don't take any risks.

I'm seeing more trees and flower burst into bloom. But remember wear sunscreen! I'm getting a burn already!

The ghostbusters were a group of fans with authentic protonpacks and the ghostbuster overalls. It looked like they posed for pictures and fund raised in the process. I'm going to put on my leotards and see what happens for me emoticon

This weekend I got 17 + miles walked this long weekend.
I saw a pennyfarthing bike rided along the parkway.
The Ghostbusters team (There was something strange in my neighborhood)
Pups in spring costumes
Little girls in Easter Finery
Lots of smiling, active people
Lizards out on rocks in the sun ( my term for sunbathers)
Spring trees in bloom

what have you found on your travels?
