I have had a few weeks, where almost every day, I have made time to hike and run in the hills near our home. I feel grateful every morning I get to enjoy nature in the early hours. I have seen the sun rise, seen the fog and rain in the hills, watched the birds and animals awaken to the day, and have gotten many great workouts. I feel more peace as I get away from the cars and homes and walk along the pathways up there. It clears my head, lifts my spirits, and brings me joy. Truly this is one of my happy places, where I unite with my thoughts and my greatest dreams.
Here are a few pictures of this beloved place.
