Come With Me On A Walk
Beginning point of the Lake Estes Walking/Bike Path
Estes Park, Colorado - June 9, 2011
We needed something simple to do on Thursday. We have been hiking every other day and choosing something less strenuous to do on the off days. For some reason, we had never found time to walk the 4 mile paved walking/biking/jogging path that circles Lake Estes in downtown Estes Park so that was where we headed. Come along with me on our walk - you won't be sorry!!
We've finally made the turn back to the west and are about 3/4 of the way to the end. This was a beautiful walk and I hope to do it again before we leave. How lucky the folks who live here to have 350 miles of Rocky Mountain National Park trails on their doorstep and THIS beautiful path to walk on the "easy" days!!
I've posted a few new journal updates on the journal I'm keeping for family and friends. If you are interested, here's the link:
I can't believe this, but I have lost six pounds since we left home on May 9. I am thrilled about that to say the least. It's most certainly a combination of plenty of exercise and sensible decisions about eating. I haven't deprived myself by any stretch of the imagination, but neither have I used "vacation" as a reason to indulge. Remember, for us, this is "travel" and we see that as different than a "vacation," so my philosophy is that eating patterns should not change. And for the most part, they haven't! We have one more week in Estes Park, then on next Sunday morning, we will head eastward toward the "other" big mountains!!
What's going on in your life this week?
