Once a month or so, I will post the current tally of miles. I accepted a challenge to walk 1,000 miles in 2016! Also to do one hike a week with added challenge via 52 Hikes and of course my own idea to set up a hike on the first day of every month all year. :) unless the first is a Monday. haha
I am excited. I was doing really well keeping up with my personal goal of 15 miles a week last year. For months. Then, I didn't get it for a week then 2 weeks, then it quit being on my radar. Hopefully (how I both overuse and hate that word) I will be more motivated with other folks joining in, even if it's just online in some cases. 1,000 miles in a year is just 20 miles a week, so I KNOW I can do it.
The pics are all Matt's. I left my SD card in the computer, so I had to use my camera's internal memory to take pics and so far, none of the software I have to pull photos can find them!
UPDATE! My pics are below these.
The kids and I measured around the tree and then stretched out, keeping our arms and hands in the same way so we could show how big around it was. Our guess, 26 feet!
|I have socks in my inner vest pocket, so I look extra lumpy! hahahaha|
Group shot. I desaturated the next one because that orange seems CRAZY bright.
We didn't get shot at even once, so it worked!
Melissa and Bren!
My pics below. :)
The Big Tree Fire back in October burned more than 2.000 acres of the forest. It could have been so much worse, this really looks about like it does after a prescribed burn. There are probably more devastated areas, but this is not as bad as I had feared.
Great kick off for the year, I am stoked.
