My red blood counts are still too low, so that I have very little energy, but I try to exercise as much as I am able. Last Saturday was such a pretty day, my husband and I decided to try the walking trail at the Natchez Trace Freedom Hills Overlook in Northwest Alabama.
The trail is not very long but it is steep. When you think you are near the top, the trail turns a little curve and goes on up again! I did not walk very fast, and I had to stop and rest a couple of minutes.
One good thing about walking slowly is that you notice small things like this crack in the paved walkway.
Amazing what you will see if you look closely. I have a fondness for moss.
The view from the top was not spectacular, but for me it was the journey that was important. I felt rather proud of myself. And I made it safely back down, though there were a couple of really steep places I was concerned that I might lose my balance.
A few days later our weather reverted back to the cold, cloudy days we've had most of this month, and we are again walking around and around in the shopping mall.
Have a wonderful week-end!
