I enjoyed a 1 hour walk this morning on a pleasant forest loop trail. It was quite a sunny morning, as you can see from the photos, but it was also quite cool. There were few birds around. I saw 2 crows and a few blue jays and that’s it. I plan to do as many forest walks as I can between now and August (when I’m planning on a canoe trip in Quetico with my buddy East Texas Red). I want to build up my stamina some in preparation for 20+ portages. Maybe I should bring a pack on these walks? I’ll give that some thought.
