Walk. Walk. Think. Walk. Walk Some More

I sure do love to walk and not talk. (Sometimes.) And explore and see new things and re-discover some old favorites. (Almost always.)

The 19th Annual Walktober Celebration is The Last Green Valley, Inc., (TLGV) listing of some 125 walks, paddles and events for October and November. For a brochure or details (everything from history to mushroom hunts and waterways) see http://www.tlgv.org.

A new program, WalkCT, is part of Connecticut Forest & Park Association's mission to "foster Connecticut as a state where sidewalks meet trails, where cities are linked to towns, and no resident is further than 15 minutes away from a great walk."

Their online resource www.walkct.org is a clearinghouse of information on trails and pathways, outdoor events, and healthy living. Check out listings of special events at http://www.ctwoodlands.org/events.

(And if you see me walking out there with a gaggle of dogs, it's how I clear my mind, get calm, stay fit, and perk ideas into stories.)
