I have a goal of finding new places to walk or, if not new, places of beauty and interest right here in Michiana. I have set a goal of 5000 steps a day as recorded on my iPhone app--which does mean that I get many more steps when my iPhone is not on my person.
My intention is to record some of these places that I have walked in the last few weeks in some extraordinarily good fall weather--and great fall color.
Yesterday's walk with Jim was along the East Race from the former St. Joe High School's parking lot to downtown and back.
My friend Maggie and I walked north from the Darden Bridge, past Healthwin Hospital, to River Commons on a footpath bordering the St. Joseph River.
My neighbor Nancy and I walked on the McCoy Creek Trail in Buchanan while our husbands played golf--which I consider, along with Mark Twain , a good walk spoiled.
And it's always a lovely walk around the lakes at Notre Dame.
