Despite temps in the mid-30’s there was bright sun, so I set off for a solo hike in the Nature Preserve. Being alone meant off-trail travel was limited, but I still discovered new things to marvel at.
Viewing the soaring rock cliffs that we explored extensively last year from below was revelatory. At times it was hard to imagine ever being up there!
The distant mountains seemed to float in the air, and the stillness and connections with Nature made for a glorious beginning to a new year.
