We are fortunate. We live in a very beautiful area, a fact that I appreciate every day.
I try to walk 3+ miles several times a week. I don't have to go anywhere but right out my door to have a beautiful, ever-changing place to keep my eyes and thoughts occupied while I walk. There are lots of birds (red cardinals, grey herons, bluejays, etc.) and lots of animals (squirrels, sheep, horses, llamas, chickens, etc.) to see too.
The surroundings change with the seasons. A few months back, I began taking a picture at about the same spot most mornings, to record the many moods of High Road throughout the seasons.
