Power walking in nature makes the exercise experience brand new every single time! What is boring and tedious on a treadmill, becomes an adventure when I take it to the outdoors. Every sense is stimulated when I tune in to my surroundings rather than just focusing on the walk itself.

Honeysuckles along my paths are among the contributors to the glorious smells of early summer.

“The scent of honeysuckle hangs in the darkness like the thick glob of sugar at the bottom of a glass of lemonade.” ~ Erika Robuck
