in Az and went for a morning walk here. You know, the earlier the better in this extreme heat. It was our normal 3-mile loop around the area, but we did notice the new solar facility going up right at the end of our street.

Since I was home alone today, I decided to make this a bike ride instead of a walk. I like to have one of my sons with me for a walk/hike. Last week I spotted this bike path that I had never used before, so I decided to head that way making it a loop. I rode 20 km round trip out to Frostavallen and back. Usually our area is considered pretty flat, but this part of our area has a few small hills which were a pain to ride up but really fun to ride down. Yes, I love to ride down hills on my old purple bike (with no gears and pedal brakes) as I scream-with-joy. The downhills were so worth the uphills, that I plan to do this ride again with my youngest son. He is going to love the downhills, too. Plus, I found a parking area at the beginning of another walking trail that we might try one day.
planning to walk tomorrow, Sept. 9? I think I have time to go myself but am thinking of riding my bike instead of walking, since one of my sons is not here to accompany me.
I drove to Frostavallen, an area about 10 km from our home. First my son and I walked to find 3 geocaches. Next we stopped to watch the ostriches in the mini-zoo there. Then we walked around the lake (Wax Lake)on the red trail which is about 3 km long. Luckily, we made it home before the rain started. We have walked here before about a year ago, and it was fun that my son recognized it a little.
I was most surprised that there is now a very nice bike path all the way from town out to Frostavallen. I shall definitely have to ride my bike this way one day just to try out the bike path. Of course, I will check it on gmaps first to see the exact distance for the bike ride with my son.
and should have time for a nice walk tomorrow, as long as the weather is decent.
yesterday we did city walking in Copenhagen, Denmark. We started at the central train station and headed to the art museum (glypoteket). My youngest son loved the Egyptian section, but my oldest son was most impressed by the French sculptures.
Next, we headed over to Tivoli Gardens , where we sat down for a little picnic after getting our ride passes. The next 5 hours was full of walking and rides, though I waited more than rode. I only tried the classic carousel, dragon boats and ferris wheel. My youngest son loved the mine ride best, as they got to shot with laser guns on the ride. He got an extremely high score and shocked most of the older kids around him.
We hurried across the street to the central station when it was time to go home, though we did make a short stop in Malmö as we walked over to buy french fries before riding the train all the way home.
The weather was nice today, but we didnt have alot of time so we made it a short walk at Orup. They have newly marked trails there, but we just followed random trails as we looked for a few geocaches.
We were most impressed by this old bunker from the Cold War period. Though my son climbed up the side of it, we still couldnt find the geocache that was hidden there. We also found a couple of orienteering markers and thought they were neat. On the whole, our area is full of forest trails, and this one will probably never be a favorite.
I thought I would ask now.
Instead of a walk, we started out on our bicycles. We just rode down the lane towards the lake, but our goal was to get two geocaches, both were hidden under bridges. The first one is the same creek that runs through our yard. Both boys wanted to walk into the creek to retrieve that cache. The second cache was under the next creek (about half of a km from the first). The second creek was alot deeper, and my oldest son went into the drain pipe to retrieve the cache. He got scared at one point because he thought he saw a very big fish in the creek. After further examination (and uproarious laughter from me and my youngest son) he realized it was a bicycle.
On the way home we rode past the very cool rc car raceway. then we stopped at a tennis court and beach volleyball court in the middle of a pasture (not close to any houses). What an odd spot to build those, but really nice to have when the mood strikes to play.
Does anyone want to join me in a walk today?
I went for a walk along the blue trail outside Hörby with 2 of my sons. It is about a 4 km trail through the forest for orienteering practice.
We parked at the orienteering clubhouse and walked to the blue trail following my GPS. Along the walk, we found 10 geocaches. The boys were most impressd with the hunting tower they found and explored in the forest. It gave them building ideas for future projects in our yard. WE also saw some huge pieces of cement and a broken bike in one area and couldn’t figure out why they were there. It was a nice area for a hike, and the terrain was definitely made for orienteering practice.
