Southwest desert hiking trail featuring common wildlife and plants. This is a local favorite - the bottom of the trail has a lot of people but as you climb higher you get the fantastic views all to yourself. It is state trust land and it is filled with creatures, if you are lucky enough to see them.
I walk 10,000 steps almost every day in the Cooper River Park. For years, I have seen rabbits, squirrels, Canadian geese, ducks, turtles, racoons, cardinals and blue jays, seagulls, groundhogs, and even a fox and a deer, among other animals. I want to show how lucky I feel to be able to walk among such amazing company.
I live in charming little town call Aylmer in the province of Québec next to Ottawa (Ontario province) the national capital of Canada. The fun with this town is the fact that we live right next to the National Gatineau Parc. Outdoor sport is part of our daily life. The French Quebec province also offer plenty of lovely restaurant, coffee shop (crêpe et croissant) and a cute market during weekend.
This little strip of rainforest is my go-to stroll. Wedged between a creek and a hill, this little path in Sechelt British Columbia has become its own little neighbourhood and gets visited daily by people and wildlife alike.
Laddie is our spunky 12-year old Cockalier who loves to explore the sandy road and fields near our home in Virginia's Northern Neck. This stretch of the road is bordered by farmland and wetlands and a fantastic variety of animals are usually out and about. Squirrels, bunnies, deer, turtles, and birds are regular sitings. One lucky day we spied a fox! Every day is a feast of new sights and smells!
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!
