#Hike Deprivation

It's been two months since I posted on my blog. Two months without a hike! Lucky for me, I have two friends who understand the value of time in the woods. Recently they led me down trails not far from our homes, staying six feet apart at all times and with our masks at hand. Here are a few photos from our outing.

Mount Rainier dominated the horizon on this perfect spring day.

Thanks, Melanie and Diane, for a great day. My soul is revived.

  1. I felt a bit that way when I discovered our beaches were closed, Sandra. Fortunately it's all moving on now. Welcome back to the world :) :)

  2. Wow, how great that you were able to do this! Thanks for sharing, and the photos make me feel the outdoor trails.

  3. Such lovely scenery and lovely friends!

  4. Nature, medicine for the soul. It's a lovely area, glad you got out.

  5. Great shots of your hike. Doesn't it feel good to be outside?
    Take care!

  6. Lovely photos. This is my favourite kind of walk, out on a trail in the forest where there is all kinds of greenery around. It is a great way to get refreshed.

  7. I've found many ways to keep busy and distract myself while mostly staying home. This venture into the woods, however, did the most to elevate my mood. There's just something about being out in nature--the trees, wildflowers, birds, wind. I wish I could capture a little bit of it and bring it home with me. Photos will have to do!

  8. It was a nice walk with all the beautiful plants. Nature is always something so beautiful and so much to discover. These are great photos

  11. Nothing like a great hike in the woods.

  12. So0 glad you had such a beautiful walk amid all this horror. Hopefully normal life will be restored some day soon.
