Walking in the Country


A post from Kelli–

I’ve been working on losing a bit of weight.  One of the things that I’ve been focusing on is to make sure that I get 10,000 steps in each day.  Because I live in the hills on a gravel road, I don’t really feel safe walking on the road.  I’m also pretty cheap and don’t really want to drive into town (8 or 9 miles) to walk because I don’t want to “waste” gas money (I know it probably sounds dumb).

My final option is to walk on the farm.  When we moved last December, Jason said something about a trail, but honestly, I didn’t pay too much attention because I was worried about moving in a total of 12 days from when I first saw the house.

This spring, I did a bit of exploring and discovered an awesome field path back to an old farm shed.  I have been walking out there most days and then around the yard a bit, but I definitely prefer walking out to the shed.  With views like this, wouldn’t you?

Walk 2 (400x225)
This view is from the top part of the hill.  There is a shed that went with a previous farmstead up here that is used to store some equipment.

Walk 1 (225x400)This is my view going back towards home.

I don’t know about anyone else, but in my opinion, this is better than any view from a treadmill.
