Slow and steady...

Today I hiked 15 miles in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southern Virginia. They were beautiful but I kept focused on my feet so as to avoid any tripping hazards.

While focused on my afore mentioned tootsies I spotted this beautiful turtle, slowly making his way down the path. I love the symbolism of a turtle on the trail ... since he may not be the fastest creature out there but he's making progress!!

Today the heat and humidity were stifling ... which made for a soggy (sweaty) day. Being from California I'm sooooo not used to humidity. I never thought I'd pine for the days in April when I was freezing my butt off ... Yet oddly I found myself daydreaming about snow, cold weather gear and chattering teeth.

Nope, it seems there's no happy medium out here (at least yet, anyway). I'll be sure to post an update when (apparently) hell freezes over and I experience a perfect day with no humidity, rain, hail or extreme weather alerts.

Hummm .... Nice weather .... Hey, a girl can dream right?

Take care everyone!
