As most of you know I love a good long walk. Since we
retired and moved to Logan I have kind of settled into a
nice little routine, at least as for as walks are concerned.
Every day I leave home , walk up past the temple, down
the Boulevard, then up Canyon Road to the bridge at the
end of the reservoir by First Dam. I counted it off one
time and it's about 10,000 steps round trip. I figure it's
very close to six miles. I try to keep a pace of about one
mile every 15 minutes and when I come home, I'm
usually dripping sweat. Along the way I see lots of
interesting things and people. At the beginning I always
see the Temple, which means so very much to me. It's
astounding how beautiful it can be at different times of
the day and at different seasons of the year. It's a good way
to start my place to start my physical exercise, and then
at the end of the day to get my spiritual exercise.
On the other end of my walk I often see deer, and always
ducks and geese. They usually come by for a handout
no matter what the weather.
When I'm tired of walking and have a few minutes once in
while I still like exploring. The other night I decided to
Google Earth a little bit and retrace our hike of a few years
ago with Jason and Rene and their boys. It was fun to
reminisce. I came on this cool picture of Havasu Falls at
Night. I remember the place so well. Jason and the boys
went swimming here and we all had a great time. As always
I took a lot of pictures but none quite as cool as this one.
I'd love to hike down there again before my legs give right
out on me.
