Hey, it had been a long time since I had the time to hike. However, today I went on a little walk on Morgan Creek Trail in Chapel Hill, NC. I have been meaning to get out more, however, life has away of messing up plans. This time I found a place that is walking distance, so it will be easy for me to not make excuses. Half the time, I talk myself out of it and one of the reason is the amount of gas I will spend to a location. It just mean I need to become better at not letting my emotion of the moment take over. Sometimes it mean kicking myself and telling myself to stop making excuses and pushing forward.
After I got over myself, I was able to enjoy being outside surrounding by the sound of birds singing and the nice cool air against my legs ( I was wearing shorts :D). I love this new trail because of the wild cotton plants. This was the first time I have seen wild cotton outside of pictures. There was a field full of different flowers, berries, and wild cotton so their was lots of different types of birds. Now birds are hard to take pictures of, so the best thing I can say is you must see for yourself.
For those who are wonder why I focused so much on observe natural instead of the miles that I walk. The reason why is because I am more of a naturalist. In a way, it is fun to observe and I naturally look at life from a scientist point of view. So I am one of those who take their time hiking on a trail. Hiking is not my only way of exercise which I will leave it as that. 😛
