This great path that we travel while trying new things and blogging our results has bled over into my private life more and more. It also has led me to taking wonderful steps in adventure and having ever so much fun. Here is an example:
My husband and I thought it would be great fun to go to the headwaters of the Mississippi River and jump across. Well, being a bit naive, we didn’t realize you can walk across, but is WAAAYYY to far to jump. Walk across I did. And followed the Mississippi from the headwaters to Winona, Minnesota. That’s as far as we got this year. During that week I walked on rocks, climbed more stairs than I can count to vista views, hiked more trails than I can name, and more. All with my cane, and all in great fun.
You see, I have spinal stenosis and arthritis in both hips. I’m really not all that strong. The beauty gave me strength to keep going. It was so breathtaking, the beauty of the birds in flight, the eagles in wing, the river flowing. Oh my. Let me post a bit of a picture view.
Thank you all my many here friends. Last year I would not have even planned this trip. This year I said, well, let me see what I can do. It might be fun. Oh, what I would have missed! Thank you, all of you. Thank the power that made this wondrous land, and those who serve and protect it for future generations to enjoy.
