Recently, I’ve been exploring new places to take my walks. About a month ago I parked at a place called Hidden Lakes that had no visible lake or pond. There were no signs or trail markers, so I looked around until I found the paved path I’d seen on the paper map I had at home.
After following the path through some low hills and over a bridge I found…another park with playing fields and picnic tables.
Still no lake.
So, this morning when I walked the same starting route, I turned onto an unpaved trail before I reached that second park. An lo and behold! Water at last!
It was so refreshing to find this pond/mini-lake in the middle of our drought-stricken landscape.
Discovering this also soothed the part of me that craves new experiences. I was getting bored of my usual walking routes.
So, double win!
How about you? What new experiences have you had recently?
