All in a Day

I’ve been wondering why these short walks we’ve been on have been taking such a toll from me.  It can’t still be the effects of those blueberry concoctions of my vacation.

And then this morning, while sitting at the top of Drinking Horse (2.8 mi, 680′ ft gain, except we chose the steep route)…

I realized what’s happened.  Today’s my birthday, so in a single day I’ve gained an entire year of age, right?  You agree?

Okay, we’re going with that.

About walksandrambles

My love of walking began in 2005, when, travelling with my Girl Scout troop to Switzerland, I joined a group of Norwegians for a day, to walk up Elsignenalp. I wasn't at all sure I could make it, but the guide was kind and through her encouragement, started out. It was an all-day affair for me and I was always the last one, but this didn't matter a bit...I'd found my new love! No photos exist for this...the camera went missing on a train...but I remember toasting myself with a cup of tea from my thermos at the top...it was a day of tough work and pure pleasure. If you walk, you know what I mean!

    Gosh….I too turned 39 again on the 29th…..lol. Happy hiking and Happy Birthday 🙂

    • Yes, 39 is a keeper, isn’t it? One of the greatest bd cards I’ve ever received was from our youngest, who wrote: “Now that we’re celebrating your XXth 39th birthday…” except that she filled in the number of 39s I’d celebrated! Made me laugh. Happy belated Birthday to you, too!

  4. Hope you continue to enjoy good health and more happiness! Keep blogging 🙂
