I had yesterday (Friday) off, and all week, I planned to go up to Shenandoah National Park to take a hike. Thursday night, as I lay in bed getting ready to drift off, it suddenly hit me that I had forgotten to pick up my packet for Saturday's race for the cure! So I altered my plans a lot Friday. I took care of some chores, including getting my race packet. But I still made time for a hike at a local park, Three Lakes Park. My route on this very warm day was maybe 2.5 miles, and I walked around each of the three ponds, such as this one.
My little trek was not as grand as my original plans, but you know, any time spent walking in a pleasant woods is time well spent, and I didn't have to drive two hours or so each way. SNP will be there for another hike, one where I do my advance planning and don't forget something else.
