Photo Blog of My Walk

Monday, November 26, 2012

I often see photo blogs of people's walking/hiking/running routes. They are always full of trees and beautiful scenery. I post how beautiful they are and how jealous I am. Then I got to thinking about that quote. I can't remember exactly how it goes, but something along the lines of someone else would love to have what you have even if you aren't satisfied with it. (please someone help me in the comments-lol). There are probably people who live in neighborhoods that are too dangerous or the weather isn't conducive to exercising outside. They might would love to take a walk in my neck of the woods! (Um, even though there are no woods, ha!)

So I took a few pics on my walk yesterday. Welcome to the Texas Panhandle!!

I like to look out and imagine the buffalo herds or maybe some teepees .

And this is one of the hills that gets my heart rate working overtime!

I'm going to try to be more grateful of my surroundings and enjoy the weather before it gets too cold...

    Reading the quote you mentioned and looking at your pictures, I thought about all the people who live in really big cities and are constantly surrounded by huge buildings so that the only thing they see that belongs to nature is a glimpse of the sky! Compared to their surroundings, I would definitely prefer yours! Even though I love forests and mountains.
    Being appreciative of what we have brings us really close to happiness. We have to keep reminding ourselves of that!

    I live near Vegas, and there's only a few months out of the year that I can enjoy the outdoors. I LOVE how flat & solitary your route looks. It looks like someplace I could finally ride a bike. Enjoy it for me! emoticon
