W&W 1: 1-1-19

My first WALKandWRITE was a snowshoe on the North Country Trail from AuSable Institute to just past Twin Lake Road and back. I went 1.5 miles before pausing to write. I set my alarm for 30 minutes, wrote and read. I created my first W&W backpack by using an old cinch pack, writing Walk &…

WALK and WRITE

In the beginning . . . Like many of you, when a new year rolls around, I begin to take stock of my life and think about ways to make it better. I think of resolutions I might make like the typical: lose weight, spend less time on the internet or watching television, exercise more,…

This is a perfect day for my second WALKandWRITE! My hubby dropped me off at Starvation Lake Road after we dropped my car off at AuSable Institute where I could pick it up and not have to backtrack along the same section of the North Country Trail. Nice! I hiked 3.6 miles on snowshoes. I…
