What a beautiful sunrise hike! What a beautiful friend inside and out! Lucky me, I get to spend time with her and soak up all of this including her wisdom, love and laughter. When I grow up, I want to be her. ;)
and some silliness
hope you have a moo-ry christmas
I saw this monkey jump into this position as soon as she heard me making my way closer to her as I was on my morning hike. She was protecting her baby and I thought for sure she was about to perform a flying figure four wrestling move to take me out. I respected her and her baby and I hiked in a different direction.
From one of my lovely Saturday hikes in Northern California.
the sky is the limit
everything seems to stretch out before me when I open my eyes and pay attention
Rodeo Lagoon and Beach right in the middle of this shot in the Marin Headlands (Golden Gate National Recreation Area). Today is beautiful and gloomy.
Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.

Each time I hike out I cannot stop singing Bonita Applebaum.
So far my favoriate hike has been the Otter Trail in Tsitsikamma National Park (South Africa). It is only 42.5 km (26.4 mi) with nice places for you to stay for the 4 nights it takes to complete the trail. There is a limit to how many people are allowed to hike and the spaces fill up soon so be sure to book ahead through South African National Parks. This post provides a nice description and this one does too.
