I’m joining Robin at Breezes at Dawn for her annual Walktober challenge, where we share a walk we’ve taken. I enjoy reading other bloggers’ autumn walks posted at the end of the month on her site. Open to everyone, this year’s dates are Oct. 14-28. From her site:
“In a nutshell, Walktober is a group walk. We all go out for a walk, post about it on our blog [include link to B@D site], and I round up all the posts in one big post here at my blog so we can join one another in our various walks. The rules are fast and loose. You don’t even have to walk. You can run, skate, hop, skip, jump, bicycle, or any other motion that requires the energy of your body to move and stay moving. You can even swim if that’s your preference.”
In previous years, I picked a local park to highlight, but this year I felt like staying home and featuring my own 7.5 acres. We have a trail around the property for walking, where the dog can be off leash and we can enjoy different habitats between the woods and river. In slideshow format, you can join me as I walk ‘our loop.’ It starts in the yard with the golden Katsura tree and shrub border turning colors, through the woods to the river, alongside it to the maple grove, back through woods to the stream and ending at the waterfall. Enjoy!
