Walking Portland, Thinking PCT

Hiking Locally, Thinking Globally

Knowing the weather was about to change, I got out of the house the other day to some urban open land and took the dog for a short walk after work. Partway across a meadow, I found patches of fennel, mint, and these lovely flowers. There would be no epic hike for me that day, only dreaming of wilderness beauty, and here, purple petals  that evoked the joy of natural beauty.  And sometimes, that is enough to give me that outdoor fix.

  1. Love this. Those little neighborhood ambles definitely keep me going between adventures.

  2. The little things (sweet pea in your photo) often add up to a big thing 🙂
