Canyon Land

Yesterday was my first time back “hiking”.  Now I use the parentheses because, of course, the boys went off trail in search of gold or mountain lions or intrigue or whatever it is boys do in the woods.  I, naturally, stayed closer to the car and on one of the flattest trails I think I’ve ever encountered.  However, I’m technically not supposed to hike for another month… so I suppose it was per doctor’s orders.  Instead I wandered around with my camera (I’ll post more non-outfit photos later).

Also, yes, I wore my Tom’s and I love them and think they are probably the best shoes ever.  I know, I know… I’m aware that I am certainly not the first person to point this out.  However, they are actually quite supportive for my poor, somewhat broken foot and great for those days when I’m going to be walking, but my hiking boots would be overkill.  And yes, this trail was flat enough where they definitely would have been… (people, I’ve been on sidewalks more challenging before).

Regardless of the lack of true hiking done on my part, it was really nice to get out of the city for awhile.  I wasn’t born a city girl or anything, but I’ve spent a majority of my time living in one since I started college.  I know it’s been too long since I’ve been outside the city when I have to convince myself I that ‘No, that was not a rattle snake… just a lizard’ about every minute or so.  Once I got my country legs back though, it was actually rather nice to be alone on the trail with the little lizards and bunnies and even the bees (and y’all know how I feel about those).

  2. I think your laid back stripes and cute cutoffs are such a wonderful pairing, especially with the yellow!

    glad you are easing back into hiking - take care of that foot!
