I believe walking truly is the best form of exercise not only for the body but for the mind and spirit.
Six years ago I retired, from teaching then gave my car away to a family in need. Then I moved from a small northern californian rural community where I had access to many of the open space hiking trails which I took full advantage on a weekly basis. The peace and serentity not to mention the views were simply put...wonderful. One time I hiked all the way from Fairfax, Ca. to Bolinas. 8 hours it took. After a quick swim in the ocean & lunch I hitched a ride home. What a day. I can't even imagine what it was like for John Muir.
Now I live in San Diego across from Balboa Park. My walks consist of the park and the concrete jungle all the way to the Midway past Petco circling back up Sixth Ave. before the Gaslamp businesses open.
It's wonderful. I love the peace of the early morning hours.
