Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Walkies

We had some free time  this morning, so Kyle and I took a little walk.  It was my fault.  I had read about this walk and it was listed as 2.5 miles.  And it's not all that far from our place so we could walk there and make it a good, long walk.  We walked from our house to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens.  Here's a picture of Reed College Place which runs through a noble and prosperous neighborhood.  We walked the length of Reed College Place, admiring the lovely old homes and the beautiful trees.  We walked through the Reed College campus.  We walked back.  It was a delightful walk but it sure seemed longer than 2.5 miles.  The last hill climb just about did me in.  When we got home I checked my pedometer.  It was 6.59 miles, with the equivalent of 18 flights of stairs.  I took a bath and a nap.

    Over 6 1/2 miles, is a great hike. There are a lot of leaves on the ground already? I love the fall, but I thought that was next month.
