My lunch walk was to the Reflecting Pool (in front of the Lincoln Memorial) and I literally saw dozens and dozens of Canada geese and Mallard ducks.

Today's lunch walk was to Upper Senate Park on Capitol Hill. One thing I was was a little cute black terrier swimming in one of the park's pool as his owner sat in the shade.

As I walked I saw long lines of slow-moving traffic,other walkers, some just making it while others were faster than I. It was a bright and windy day... emoticon

I managed to walk the dogs their 1.11 miles despite a light rain and chilly morning temps and we saw the overcast sky, wild turkey gathering in the field, and stark looking trees and miserably cold livestock in my neighbors pastures.

ANGEL1066 the important thing is you managed to get yourself up went outdoors and still managed the stairs despite your physical obstacles- you my dear are emoticon

What a great thing you did going next door to visit a neighbor. I sure hope your inflamation reduces and you start feeling better so you can make it to the gym or maybe a small outdoor walk.

I need to get out, even when I cannot walk, as today, with both knees still inflamed & my lungs very congested. But I went out in our yard, breathed better in fresh air, saw flickers and doves, a group of cats frequenting a newly filled bird bath - apparently the only unfrozen water about. The sun felt warm and welcome, tho air temp was below freezing and any shade chilled. I talked to my son and granddaughter via ipad, waving thru the screen, and later visited with our neighbor across the road. I tried to use the elliptical Thursday, but my knees just would not bend, and yesterday I could hardly manage our porch steps. Today was a little better. Hopefully I'll be able to try our gym again later this week.

I am so proud of myself for getting up and out there this morning. I ate breakfast, put on my workout clothing and grabbed the ipod to do a sunrise walk of 3.46 miles in 63 minutes. Along the way I watched the sunrise, saw ground fog rolling in towards me & was it cold, and had the opportunity of enjoying the morning as I saw little traffic on the road but the neighbors horses and prize bulls grazing in the pastures.

I too am supposed to walk the dogs daily, we don't stop for sniffing or peeing or anything, they know they are "working" and we easily get a good three miles on good days. Bad days we at least do 1 mile. Bad days depend on me and my mood.

If the weather is nice, I walk along the bike trail, which follows a canal for a while. Last summer, they had drained the canal for some reason, and I saw a bunch of junk that had accumulated at the bottom, including a mangled bicycle. Most of the time, though, I see the water and squirrels and lots of people biking and walking (some with dogs) and a few people roller-blading. I also see the trees and the changing of the seasons.

I will probably not post what I see too often as I take the same route all the time. I take a bike path out in the desert. It is a lot of ups and downs and yesterday I saw an old tree with 6 vultures in it. Today we crossed the paths of 2 other hikers and in the past it rained so for about 4 wks. there were 4 different varieties of flowers blooming all over the place. There are only a few yellow tiny daisy like flowers left.

Hi,
Part of my fitness plan is to walk my dogs daily for at least 1 mile or more and also go for my own cardio walk without all the stops for smelling and peeing along the side of the road. emoticon emoticon

One of the thing I like to do is observe what I see as I am out stepping along.
How about on this post if you went for an outdoor trek you post what you saw.

Today, I just finished walking with my husband & the dogs for a 1.25 mile walk and we saw a HUGE flock of wild turkey out in the field. Man, we are going to have a turkey epidemic if that flock reproduces come the spring. Then I could seriously have a "turkey trot" if I spot them on time along the road as I am out for a jog/walk. emoticon
