The view from my backyard all week has been cloudy with some rain. In between He-Man and I have gone out hiking twice each time on a new trail. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen some images of the trail there.
Our hike on Monday was a 5.3-mile loop that wiped me out. In Silicon Valley, I lived 257 ft above sea level. Here I’m 4,750 ft above sea level and the hike took us up to nearly 6,000 feet. I was huffing and puffing and light-headed for most of it. I am out of shape and not used to this elevation yet. A sinus infection and plugged ears didn’t help, but I hope this summer’s hikes get me ready for snow-shoeing this winter!
The weather may be unsettled here this week, but we are settled and on the road to discovering new trails and sights. I hope you’re feeling settled in and finding some time to enjoy the outdoors this week.
