Walking Out Your Door

Living on a trail can have its benefits:


All I have to do is walk out my door, and in a few minutes I am deep into green:


On Sunday, life was hectic but I wanted to get out, so I took Walker and Alistaire for a one-way hike on the Green to Cedar Rivers Trail:


That trail ends at the Cedar River Trail, another rail to trail.


The first half of our hike was through forest, by the lake that sits in the middle of town, and then through part of town. The second half, on the Cedar River Trail, follows the river out of town, making it a favorite section of mine.

Add in a lady on a SUP, enjoying the sunny weather….


Many trestle bridges crossing the river – each one leaving the boys more excited than the last –


And preferably with me making “choo choo” noises upon each crossing for them….


The boys in their ride – a BOB Duallie jogger stroller. It works great on rail to trails – if they want to hike, they get out. If tired, they climb back in. Take a nap. Watch the scenery.


And Mommy gets in 8 miles – and best of all, Daddy picks us all up at the end of the trail 😉 Works for me!
