We enjoy taking walks to get exercise. It's what we have enjoyed for years. Our walks have been a good way for us to talk and observe the beauty of the world outside of our home. There have been many problems solved on our walks. Over the years the paths we follow have changed depending on the time we have to spend. Mostly we spend about thirty minutes walking two miles. Starting the day with a walk always feels right. All you really need is a good pair of walking shoes and off we go.
This time of year is so lovely as we observe the leaves taking on their fall colors. Trees seem to light up with the sun. How beautiful our world is. I'm so glad I live in an area that has four seasons.
Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.
Let's take a look at our walk that we enjoyed recently. It is the walk that we take frequently.
Sometimes we go on a longer walk. Our city has a wonderful Canal Path/ Heritage Trail that takes a little longer. It's a 3.1 mile circuit that we usually begin by the river and takes us around the old canal and then back to the river. Along the way you can learn more about our town and the changes that have taken place. This past weekend was so pretty we decided to take this path for our walk. There were many folks outside enjoying this wonderful autumn weather. Folks walking their dogs, bikers, children with parents all enjoy this path. Many communities are adding trails for the enjoyment of their citizens. Old rail beds have been converted into walking paths. Our daughter worked on the committee to develop an old rail bed into a trail for her community in New England.
Here are a few photos of our Canal/Path Heritage Trail.
