Today's post has nothing to do with The Beatles, other than their songs playing in my head when I do stuff.
Our 10K (6.2 mi.) Volkswalk today took us through the entire Friedrich Wilderness Park. I think our feet tramped every trail.
One of the oldest working windmills in Bexar (pronounced bear) County, Texas. There is a water tank at the bottom of it which provides water for wildlife.
|A level section of trail.|
|Lots of juniper forests, smelled good.|
|Anyone know what kind of flower this is?|
My new boots earned their keep today! I will need inserts to soften the blow across the balls of my feet. Other than that, they're lightweight and comfortable.
Our walk today was more in the category of a HIKE. We started out on paved trails. That didn't last long. The easy trails were in the first mile or two. From there, we went up, down, around, over rocks, over roots, through forest, on ridge tops. By the end of the hike we were aching for the car.
|By far the hardest section of trail!|
|So happy for ankle-high hiking boots.|
|Day trippers, yeah!|
|Ahhh, sit down and rest for a few minutes. Happy face.|
|Up, up, up.|
|"It won't be long Yeah, yeah, Yeah, yeah, Yeah, yeah."|
|Norwegian Wood (NOT)|
Almost back to the car. Yay! We've got a lot more hiking/walking to do to get in shape for Mesa Verde, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, and the Black Hills. One more weekend before our trip. I see more Volkswalks in our immediate future.
Today's hike took us three hours. We high-tailed it back to the 5er for tuna fish sandwiches with avocado and a nice long rest.
A few miscellaneous photos from the past week:
|Love the name of this place. (Hey Bob!)|
|Our favorite used book store.|
|Sunnie waiting to be washed.|
|Bob enjoying Mariners vs. Ranger baseball.|
|Bowie the laundry cat (not to be outdone by Sunnie)|
Time for laundry (as soon as the sun goes down!). Might be a good night to enjoy the pool.
Enjoy your Sunday and the rest of the week.
Travel Bug out.
