Warm spell in January. The woods were a little wet today. As in soggy.
You set out on a walk. It’s such and such distance. It generally takes a certain amount of time. And energy.
And then there are the days your boot weighs twice as much. You find yourself navigating ponds mid-path. Or sliding sideways down slopes.
Only 2 days ago, you were snowshoeing this same path. On powder snow. In bitter cold.
Aaaah. The sweet outdoors. It is always, yes always changing.
And I think I’m different?
