Tuesday, November 8, 2011 – Bear Mountain Lodge – Old Windmill Trail
Happy birthday to my god daughter, Jaclyn Diane Long! I love you honey!
A new hiking buddy was added to the mix today and what an enjoyable hike it was! Helen and her dog Elsa joined Cody and I at the Bear Mountain Lodge hiking trails. We did the north side of their trails and enjoyed some up and down exercise through a few arroyos. Several nice long range views. Helen and I always have a wide variety of conversation and today was no different. I heard about her recent bicycling trip to Eastern Europe, we discussed religion and health and careers and several other interesting topics. A perfect morning with a chill in the air, a dusting of snow on the ground, and a blue-jean blue sky.
Since I forgot to turn on the GPS, I’m guessing at the mileage:
Approx. 3 miles walked, 2 hours on the nose.
We hiked the Old Windmill Trail in both directions and then walked the dirt road from our cars to Bear Mountain Road and back.
12 down / 88 to go!
