Yesterday, the entire family joined Cara and her son for a walk to Patapsco Valley State Park. I was terribly unprepared for the walk, and I didn’t do much to prepare the others in my family as well. My mind, as much as my body, is still so out of shape when it comes to excursions off the beaten path.
It did not diminish our enjoyment in any way, though. It just made it….more interesting to navigate the trails with Crocks and flip-flops (not to mention lugging a 15-pound camera bag the entire time).
I cannot imagine hiking the trail three months ago when I was 20 pounds heavier. All I can do is think to the future about how enjoyable the hike will be in August, when I’ve dropped another 10 pounds (and I am more prepared!).
I was able to take some pictures, though. Enjoy. :)
