500 mile Journey~Redwoods

500 Mile  Journey
with 

Kerry and Jean 

Let's Get Walking!  Part of the Journey for us is traveling to new places. Wherever the destination is we will be walking!  We walked through the Van Damme State Park, Redwoods.  This was our first walk in the redwoods.  We were so impressed with the tall trees, of course,  but look how green the plants are.  So many plants, so many different colors of green.  I felt like this could have been one of the most healing walks we've been on. 

The trails on this walk were well maintained and easy to walk. The Fern Canyon Trail is a 7.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Little River, Ca. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips and birding .
We didn't walk that far. What we did was walked 1.5 up and 1.5 back so we did our 3 miles walk.
Which was plenty to get the feel of the trees and the environment.



enjoy a little videos of the trail.

Make a wish

Make a wish in the tunnel, it's always a good idea.

On our travels when went through the Carlin Tunnels.

It's a little ritual of mine to make a wish when I drive through tunnels.

Good Morning,

After the Solar Eclipse which was totally awesome. I needed some time to process what my astrological sign said was going to happen after the eclipse!

Taking Two Minutes In Nature to meditate on this is always a good idea.

500 Mile Journey ~ 100 mile milestone

Image
500 Mile  Journey with  Kerry and Jean  Let's Get Walking!  We did it!! 100 miles walking.  We thought that we should do something big for this milestone. 
It has been so hot here that we decided we needed to go to the beach.  We went to Ft. Bragg, CA.  On our first night we found this wonderful Italian restaurant. 
It was the perfect place to celebrate and open our gift.    

For reaching 100 miles we each got a key chain with little walking shoes. 
It was a great trip and we stayed 3 days at the beach. 
More pictures of our adventure to come.

Here is the last of our scouting pictures.  Dirt roads of Nevada ..... If your not familiar with open lands then seeing cattle on the road may surprise you.  We passed this guy shading himself from the over 90 degree weather we are having.  
After the thunderstorms you will find washed out roads, go slow some can be pretty deep.   What is the arrow pointing to?  Let me tell you a little story of how I got to go to The Mall of America in Minnesota.  Kerry and I were camping in the hills. We started out on a  "little walk" after breakfast.  He kept hiking and I kept following......before we knew it we were mostly up this mountain, in the clouds, walking on shale rock.  I was exhausted and needed to take a break, but Kerry kept going, he left me sitting on the ground resting. He came back to say, "Your almost to the top, just keep going." The deal I struck for "keep going" on this little morning walk, was tha…

Progress Report Week 9




It's been another busy week for us.  On our travels we went to Soldier Creek, Nv to get out of the heat.  This is a very pretty road, but beware it is only a one lane dirt road with not many places to turn around.  We figured we would walk along side the road and park the near the creek to rest and put our feet in the water.  The trails are a bit too step for me yet. 
Here is a little video of our ride on Soldier Creek road and you will see how tight the road is.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ia-Ai9rVar4

500 Mile Walking Journey with  Kerry and Jean  Let's Get Walking!  Harrison Pass road trip 




Last week while we were scouting out hiking places on the back roads of Nevada, we came across this interesting rock.  It has dents on it, rocks and, money have been laid on top of it.  We have seen to it for years and it's very cool that it is still here.  Kerry says it's a Rock Metate used by the Native Americans to grind nuts and herbs. It may also be a medicine rock for leaving offerings and praying for good health and fortune.  We are still walking towards are 500 Mile Goal, most of our walks are around the Spring Creek Marina which we have shown you before in earlier blogs.   However, now and then when we come across something interesting in our travels we will be sharing those with you as well.   come along a enjoy our back road car trip.  Harrison Pass https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXaX_OjH9uQ

It's summertime and we had to adjust our activities. 
Let's get kayaking!!!

We made a decision.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8DAWhnTvg4














I checked my "Map My Walk" and guess what?  It will record how far we paddle in the water!! We have been kayaking every evening since we bought our kayaks.  It's a whole different exercise for the body and I have to say I'm a bit sore, in a good way of course.  Plus, just for my own curiosity I recorded us walking around Walmart! It's a Super Walmart and it's big from one end to the other. Well to my surprise we walked over a mile just shopping. .......I haven't sold Kerry on the idea that miles we walk together should count even if it's in a store.   But it certainly beats walking in 100 degrees.  Be Inspired, Be Safe and  Let's Get Walking, or kayaking, Kerry and Jean

Day Trip on the back roads of Nevada  It has been so hot here, still with temperatures in the high 90's that we just haven't been walking like we should be. 
We decided we needed a day trip to the back roads of Nevada to find some cooler hiking areas where we can get out of the heat. 
We got up early, packed a lunch and headed out towards Ruby Marshes. 
We finally got the Blue Heron taking off for flight. 
enjoy this video

There's nothing better then walking outside 
and seeing the world.
We did find lots of places to hike, walk on dirt roads, and stay cool,
more photo's and videos to come.
