DH and I took another Volkswalk yesterday. This was out in the country, in the verdant Willamette Valley. It was about 65 degrees, and the rain held off until just after we finished our 6 kilometers. Lovely scenery. Without the cloud cover, there would have been some awesome views as well. I might suggest a return hike when the weather clears (mid-July.) One house we passed was guarded by the world's most friendly pug who wanted to walk the rest of the way with us. This dog should be a Walmart greeter or a maitre'd in his next life. Honestly, he did everything but offer us a beer and some chips.
Isn't this a cool passage? This is what happens when you plant cedars along the driveway, and wait fifty years.
The event was based at a peony grower's farm. DH snapped a shot of me snapping a shot of the fields. the photo I took was one of the .99 gazillion pictures that wasn't worth keeping. But I love just about any picture of me!
Next Saturday,DH has to work. I don't know when we'll do our next walk, but soon! The club has established goals and badges that you can work toward. We are going to participate in the program. First, we'll shoot for our "W" badge, looking for waterfalls, water towers and other w things on the walks. This makes it even funner!
