Topic: Walking through the world
I walked about 7 miles on the Lacamas Lake trail here in Camas. It runs up and back on the west side of Lacamas Lake (duh!). It was very busy with walkers, runners, children and dogs.
I do a lot of walking but want to get into a daily walk, at least, or every other day when life gets in the way. I used to bike quite a bit when I lived in Tucson but I didn't have a car there. Now I would rather drive or take public transit to a walk instead.
I like volkswalks and other set walks but I also like to just walk. I've been walking the streets here, usually Portland but some in Vancouver. I just walk for one, two, maybe five miles. I'm working on the main east west streets between I-5 and I-205. It's interesting how many things you see when you walk a street rather than drive. Sometimes it takes several times to walk the whole street and I often walk part of it in a different direction so there is no pressure to walk a certain direction or for a specific time.
Set or programmed walks are also nice but it's interesting to just start walking to see what you find.
