One of the major benefits of living in Olympus Cove is that we are 1.6 miles from the trailhead to Neff's Canyon. If I were really ambitious, I would stick the punk in the jogging stroller and we would just run there instead of driving, but "just running" there would mean running 1.6 miles up a mountain. No thanks. Instead, the punk and I drove to the trailhead and then got out for our morning workout.
The air was crisp, the leaves are just beginning to change... almost. And the sun hadn't yet climbed over the mountain. All was quiet. I felt refreshed and rejuvenated.
Something tells me the punk felt differently.
