Today I went hiking in Boulder with my friend Devon. She was one of those people that I instantly connected with the first time that I met her a few months ago. Her love for life is overwhelming contagious and she has a sense of adventure that is so much fun to be around. Finding friends like her make moving seem like an easy thing to do!
Before we started off on the trail we walked into the information station at the bottom of Chataqua Park for guidance. My Indiana University sweatshirt was greeted with a cheerful, “hello, fellow Hoosier!” and a story about the cheery parks’ man living in a teepee outside of IU for his senior year in college. I bet he has crazier stories than Harry Caray! Since the winds in Boulder were ridiculous today he showed us a trail that might block some of the wind and also be scenic. We ended up hiking a little over three miles and took lots of fun pictures along the way. I am still baffled by the lack of snow in the foothills and the exceptionally warm days as we head into December.
I am definitely not complaining, I am just hoping this is not going to affect the ski days that will (hopefully) take up lots of my workout days! Bring on the snow dance….
