Since March 2020, my family and I have been quarantining in our house in order to help control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. I'm working from home, my kids are attending virtual school from home, and our cats are enjoying every minute of it. During the colder months, when outside walks were less pleasant, we measured the distance around our home and calculated how many laps were needed to walk a mile—94.2—enough to make you very dizzy, and extremely bored. We all hope to get back outside soon!
A walk around a nature reserve tucked in a northern city. These little woods have been the set for my children's imagination. During lockdown, they have travelled to deep dark forests, taken Winnie the Pooh to 100 Acre Wood, flown to the moon, stomped out a bear hunt and searched for treasure island.. We have seen birds and bugs, followed footprint trails and rabbit poo! Collected feathers, all the colours of leaves and precious rocks. Then watched the geese come and go. A lovely place for city dwelling babies.
My small town of Douglas Massachusetts is home to the beautiful Douglas State Forest, 1500 acres full of wildlife and birds, flowers and plants, woods and waterways and miles of walking trails. This pretty walk—around the beaver pond, past old foundations and stone walls, among the glacial erratic boulders and through the hemlock grove—is one of my favorites.
This gorgeous area on the Southern California coast is home to some of the rarest pine trees in the world. It's a wonderful place for a walk, either on the bluff trails or along the beach.
Between Concord and Walnut Creek, CA, sits Lime Ridge Open Space for walkers, hikers, and mountain bikers to enjoy. It's wild land so we see coyote and snakes. A herd of cattle work 24/7 to keep the grass short to mitigate fires. We hike a 3 mile loop (our legs never looked so good). At the summit of this section we get views of Suisun Bay, three cities, a long range of high hills, and Mt. Diablo, one of the highest peaks in the region. Spectacular!
Stanley Park is one of the largest urban parks in Canada and is only 10 min from my home. There are a lot of things to see. My Favorite route is a walk from Second Beach to Brockton point. You can't miss the features on this way! Meet Raccons near the Lost Lagoon, the flowers on the Rose Garden , and see the view of the North Vancouver from the lawn close to the Brockton Oval. Some Restaurants , Vancouver Aquarium and other attractions are temporarily closed, but you can Enjoy the fresh air and the giants trees right now!

My husband and I live in a remote mountain valley in Eastern Oregon with our German Shepherd pup and our kitty. We are always looking for beautiful walking spots with lots of steep hills (so that our puppy can get all of his energy out). This loop is the perfect mix of challenging hills made worth it by breathtaking views of the valley. It is a great loop to run as well. On especially beautiful days it is worthwhile to keep climbing up through the huckleberry and rosehip filled forest to the top of the hill where you can linger and take in the 360 degree views of snow capped mountains and Ladd Marsh.
This map illustrates the walking trails right outside my backyard. The trails are an endless journey of gardens, fields, bugs, birds, ponds, streams and beauty.
This is a bite-sized walk, part of Portland’s amazing Trail system... it’s just enough for a quick dog walk, to see flowers, trees, birds, or catch up with a friend (there’s something for each season!)- A shot of nature nestled in our little city.
A few weeks ago, my husband and I took a self guided historic walk, downtown Springfield. The walk, "The Lenski Walk", was included with our renewed membership to the Westcott House. Lois Lenski was a Springfield native, writer, illustrated, and contributed to 98 children’s books. To make the walk even more interested we created a challenge, we would each create artwork inspired by our walk. He took some amazing photos which can be seen on his blog, https://www.jeremymuddphoto.com/blog. And I created my first fully digital illustrated map.
