four mile route

Now that the weather is getting slightly better, I’m interested in finding some new routes in the neighborhood. I tried this route, thought it might be too long, but it was fine.

I use the Moves app to track my walk, but I had to learn how to take a screenshot on the iPhone (Home + Sleep/Wake button), then had to email it to myself to be able to post here. Quite a route in itself!

sky skin

Taking photos of the sky at night. Low clouds reflect ground light in different ways. It is hard to capture in the photos, but there is a range of moody, moving colors. I feel them almost more than I see them.

ready and waiting

Ready to say goodbye to February.

Waiting for a loved one to get back in touch…someday.

It’s still cold.

Walking in the neighborhood.

A longer route takes me down Woodway Road to Hoyt Street. There are no sidewalks. Snow is piled everywhere. A few patches of wet mud reveal the state of the ground.

Hawk hunting at the neighbor’s bird feeder.

snowwalk

Light snow, I had to walk in it.

I enjoyed the sting of snowflakes on my face.

Snow turned to sleet/rain and I was wet when I got home.
