Attempt at Pekin Trail

Monday, April 30, 2012

I had the day off today, so my sister and I headed back to Orford National Park. We attempted to hike a newly opened intermediate level side trail in the woods.

There's nothing I enjoy more than walking on a carpet of pine needles,

and dry leaves.

Unfortunately, as the embankment got steeper, I was afraid to slip because I wasn't wearing sturdy hiking shoes. Lesson re-learned. It's also harder to keep my balance with all this extra weight I'm carrying. I'm working to fix that!

We headed back to the easier walking trail. Can you see the chipmunk behind that fallen tree?

We stopped for a snack at this lovely viewpoint.

Pond by the trail.

We stopped to do some grocery shopping on the way home, in order to re-stock on healthy provisions. It was a delightful day, and I have a lot to be thankful for!

    Love the photos, what fabulous place to walk!! Good on you being safe -I sure miss wearing my hiking boots -they make such a big difference walking trails, but my toes won't tolerate them :(
    Keep on walking these trails, and that extra weight will be history!
    You go girl!!

    Rejj, I so love these photos. I think we have a similar outlook. I also love walking in the woods, and on pine needles and dry leaves.

    And you are getting out for so many walks - how wonderful!
