We live in an area with stunning beauty. What we lack in neighborhood running trails we make up for in hills and forests. I have visited areas like Denver where there are dedicated running/biking trails that wind through every neighborhood and beside every highway. While we don't have that, we do have local, state, and national parks within driving distance.
I thought I'd share with you some of the sights we've enjoyed over the past few weeks. Rob has been enjoying kayaking with our neighbor for the past month or so. They had been running partners, but injuries have kept them from running and the cardio from kayaking has been keeping them happy. Rob took his camera with him last week and here are some of the sights!
Yesterday, Rob had a flexible schedule. He worked an insane number of hours last week and was able to keep his workload a little lighter this week. We decided to go for a trail run together yesterday morning. We went to the same county park where he and his friends kayaked and the weather was perfect (about 40 degrees and sunny). We even saw a deer.
Here are a couple of pictures we took

We ran about 6 miles and it was the perfect way to spend time together. We're actually in the process of planning a trip between Christmas and New Year's and when we were telling the kids about our destination Josh said, "this isn't a hiking trip, is it"? I guess I have some convincing to do, but this is all about making memories, right? And, by the way, the trip in the winter probably wouldn't involve much hiking, if any!
