New Year's Resolution: Spend More Time in Nature

Happy New Year!

 

 

I recently had the opportunity to take two very special hikes on Mount Tamalpais, the mountain near my home that is laced with trails for seemingly every mood and workout. One I took when one of my closest and oldest friends came to visit, and the other I took on Christmas Day with my husband Michael. (Unfortunately, our daughter Anna had to stay home that day with a bad cold.)

Both hikes prompted me to make a pact with my family - we're going to take one new hike a month and discover a new trail (and perhaps an old favorite here or there.) We count among our blessings the fact that we live in an amazingly rich place with tremendous natural beauty and well-maintained access that allows us to enjoy it.

 

 

As with most New Years, I resolve to spend meaningful time with family and friends, improve my health and well-being, and partake in activities that feed the soul. Spending time in nature fulfills all three, while profoundly and, often mysteriously, filling the personal well of wonder and awe.

 

You can see more pictures of the two hikes on my blog, Slow Family Online:

I wish you time in nature, with family and friends, and all else that fills your soul in 2012.
