Yesterday I went on a short overnight tour, probably the last activity before my start in Oviedo mid-September 😎
This time I visited a settler's homestead north of the Arctic Circle, remote even by the standards of our municipality, 40 miles from the nearest proper village – proper as in larger than a hamlet.
The images give an impression of the landscape dominated by rivers, lakes, swamps and boreal forest. At the homestead I had to spend the night in my tent as I had no keys (yet) 😆 . This will be different next time! But it was nevertheless a nice evening with good food and a cold night with some Aurora showing up 😎 .
The next morning (today actually) felt like autumn, frosty and with some beautiful light.

Just this morning I learned that there is an alternative pronunciation to the name Sabine. In English it rhymes with queen, in French it ends in an ah sound. I believe your native language is Flemish? So which pronunciation do you use?

I guess the more Anglo Saxon / Germanic pronunciation although living so close to the languageborder ( and local dialect) I hear the French version too.
I prefer Sabien though above Sabine , especially seeing our local dialect has an awful " i"....

Well, today on my regular hike at Frontenac State Park I can see that autumn is right around the corner! Today I saw maple leafs turning to their glorious fall colors, sumac turning red, and a few New England asters. Also some bluebirds, and luckily my husband was along and had his camera and took a shot of a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird on a Honey Locust tree, and of the Mississippi river from the top of the bluff.

Hi there, @SabineP
Did you know that there is a river named for you in New Zealand? There is a tramping track, too -the Traverse-Sabine circuit, some of which I happened to follow this past summer... and there are a couple of DOC huts, as well, both of which I have slept in :).

Here, I heard your name pronounced both Se-bean with the ´e´ swallowed & Sah-byne as in 'thine', and also in French style -Sa-been-eh. There is a bit of linguistic confusion down here...

I am still in the gardens. Today is the Fantasy sub-garden, somewhat down the rabbit hole.

The entrance to the sub-garden is via narrow passage where the long pointy arms move up and down. I only took a still photo rather than a video.

Camino de Santiago de Compostela (2022)
A final long walk with an 8kg back pack yesterday. The pack contained almost everything I will carry on the Camino Frances starting STJPDP on 21st Sept.

We walked the first stage of the West Highland Way in Scotland, Milngavie to Drymen (an oxymoron in Scotland) and return, 26 miles all in. 10.5 hours including an hour for lunch and a drink. The walk was fine, slight tenderness in the sole of my heel. Something to watch out for. We walk from Urdaniz to Uterga on day 3.

An oxymoron, why is that?

It is well known that Scottish men like a drink. If a place has no bars or pubs it is called ”dry”.
Not that Drymen doesn’t have hotels and pubs.😄
You know what? Scenery, long remembered, was lit up for me in your photos. Thank you. It was the background to my growing up. Funny how we are really formed by what surrounds us. And great you got to explain a context for oxymoron!

Very quiet walk during the televised football games today, by far the best time to walk on Saturdays during the season. 7D5F2A60-7A04-45BA-AA05-BF037F80251E.jpeg BC48AEAF-B1F6-42C9-88F4-052951EB724C.jpeg 5B4AABB3-60BC-4664-8FEC-F5838E5FEB2D.jpeg
P.S. for years I traveled to Sabine, Louisiana, on the Sabine River which is the boundary of Louisiana and Texas. I never heard or thought of it being pronounced other than “say-bean.” That area is so French, it’s the first language to many there. Thank you. Learn something every day.

Yesterday, in honour of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II, I went to reminisce with my elderly mother, a 6 km walk.

When I was 9 years old Queen Elizabeth II came to town. (Mt Isa, Qld., Aust. 1970).

In our house there was a frenzie of excitement. Dad said, Say hello to the Queen from me. She's a relation! (Now, how did he figure that?). We donned our hats, school uniforms and comemorative copper medals and flocked with thousands of other children to greet her, shoving ourselves as close as possible to the front of the crowds, hoping against hope to be the one spoken to. Then, would you believe it, just like that, the Duke of Edinburgh shook my sister's hand...

Mother loved the Queen. She and the two Princesses had been Girl Guides ´together´, albeit in Time but not place. By the time I made an appearance my older sisters were already donning Brownie uniforms, using brasso to polish their trefoil badges and chanting the pledge. ´I promise on my honour to do my best, to do my duty to God and the Queen etc etc... As a little girl it seemed to me that in my family God, the Queen and lending a helping hand featured large. They were certainly talked about, insisted upon. Year after year my sisters donned their guiding uniforms until eventually one of them became a Queen's Guide and Mum became a commisioner. Then, one day, in the muddle of constant shifting, frequently changing schools and setting up house after house I, too became a Brownie..

There are other memories, too, of singing ´God save the Queen!´ every day at primary school as the hot morning sun beat down upon our heads -being hollered at in the school parade grounds to stand at a attention...

R.I.P our beloved Queen.

Well my local walk saw me passing probably 90% of the attendees at a Garth Brooks concert, all sporting hats. Then I saw this forlorn hat in the middle of the road. Must be a thing to wear these hats to his concerts.
I confess happily to knowing only that Garth Brooks exists, he plays music, and has been playing for three nights in Dublin. I only really heard of him very recently, in the context of some argument over the venue...

A morning walk along the paths of one of my favourite places to see the changing of the seasons. The Maplewood Mudflats / Wild Bird Trust / Conservation area in North Vancouver. The area is also the unceded traditional lands and territory of the indigenous peoples of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation.

The path begins alongside a sculptural installation: "Shangri-la to Shangri-la" by artist Ken Lum. The shacks are scale model representations of squatter's cabins that lined the intertidal zone - Maplewood Mudflats - on the north shore of Burrard Inlet from the early twentieth century. Long an alternative living place, the last residents were evicted and the cabins burned down in the early 1970's. The sculpture on the left represents the cabin that the writer Malcolm Lowry lived in during the 1940's while he was writing "Under the Volcano". The actual location of his cabin was further west along Burrard Inlet.

Cloudy skies when I arrived and it soon brightened up though the sun was filtered by smoke from wildfires in different areas of the province.

Hi there, @Theatregal
I´ve just downloaded Lowry´s novel. I´m not sure how far I´ll get with it but I´ll give it a go. I love the photos.

Derailing the thread a bit...

Hi @lovingkindness - here's a story Lowry wrote (The Forest Path to the Spring) about his time living in the cabin on the mudflats at the edge of the forest in the 1940's. He calls the community of squatter's shacks "Eridanus", a name drawn from the river in Virgil’s Aeneid which waters the Elysian Fields of the Earthly Paradise.

I am piggybacking on the link! I have to do something else, but when I have finished, I will sit down to enjoy the story! Tanx!

I have read it. Such simple (seemingly) prose...I think it is beautiful.

Some forest paths and lots of “kissing gates”
The dinky church of St Catherine’s by the sea

Then some wonderful scenery with undulating paths
once or twice they seemed a bit daunting but not as bad as they looked
Sometimes it’s easier to go up than down
Thank heavens for walking poles that lengthen!
Beautiful Durdle door

Ten k. walk today with an old friend.We had not seen each other for a long time so we had a lot to catch up.
No pictures but I found a video that captures this gorgeous walk really well.

Quite funny they used the soundtrack of the Good , the Bad & the Ugly... ;)

We finally got some much needed rain.
The mud must have looked good this time.

On the previous page in this thread I wrote
"I make fun of Sabine's mud but in the [White Mountains] we get rocks, roots, ruts, washouts and windfalls." We actually call them blowdowns but that would ruin the rhythm.

We went back up to New Hampshire for a long weekend and more mountain hikes. After reaching a small peak I started taking some pictures of the trail conditions on the way down to show the rocks, roots, etc. Peg really hates going down on the rock slabs. Usually she sits and does a slow slide.

I understand Peg completely.
I ruined ( luckily an old ) linnen trouser with slowly sliding off some rocks years ago in the Alpujarras.

Hi guys! I am rarely participating on this thread as I've posted my walks on my local trail many times, but still occasionally enjoy stopping by to see the content/pictures of everyone here.🙂
I met up with @maryloufrommadison yesterday and I have a few pics I can share from our walk. We had perfect weather and finished with lunch at a lovely Japanese restaurant.

Hi Annette, are you still walking stretches of the SW Coast? I have ordered the guide book in the past, but due to the possibility of inclement weather, defaulted to the Cotswold Way and had better weather "back in the day".

Hi Chris
just walking it when we’re in the area
the Cornwall section is the most beautiful section of all though
weve been lucky with the weather though
its been brilliant this year for walking
we did a beautiful section last Sunday…see post above and met a couple from Ourense in Galecia walking the path
they were campion and carrying about 18 kg each
I’ve never seen such heavy bags!

The intention was to walk the SWCP eastwards from Lulworth cove
Unfortunately after a short walk and descending about 200 steps, the route was closed for Military training
Avoiding those steps going back, we went back by the cobbled beach

A look at the map and off we went on a circular walk, first on part of the Hardy way, a 348km path commentating Thomas Hardy.It runs through Dorset and Wiltshire.
That took us to the Purbeck Way, a 43km path of varied scenery through the Purbeck hills and the Dorset coast
A lovely walk of 15 km 51E82ED4-5CF2-45FD-A240-E079E06A55F0.jpeg 866239A0-70C7-4140-AD38-A086191CD6E6.jpeg BA9DC11F-7335-4560-B659-CD99939EB671.jpeg 743F4F65-0C4D-484A-A2EB-CC2369BFAAA6.jpeg CAC6600C-286F-4F2C-A74A-F6C7B07E49A3.jpeg 476578C2-CBA3-4EDA-8737-B342B09F5130.jpeg CF0EEBDA-188B-4885-8829-0ADED24F011E.png

As I had to give up this week's start of my Camino in Oviedo, I yesterday returned to the mountains in Nikkaluokta to cope with my frustration.
The poem on the stone translates roughly as follows (Paulus Utsi was a poet of the Sámi people):

Let the mountain wind caress your cheek
Let the rain wash your face
Let the mountain wind blow your heart clean
Come and see the playful light
And the shining polar star
Come play with mountain wind
Do not be afraid! Go far!
Do not be afraid! Wind shows the way!
Let the mountain wind caress your cheek
Come!
Paulus Utsi

Just to give some background: Paulus Utsi during his live had to suffer under several forced resettlements by the Swedish state. First, as Norway and Sweden did not appreciate the concept of an indigenous group living with their reindeer on both sides of the border (of course the Sámi people were there long before the border was drawn) .. and later several times as the big dams were built for hydroelectric power. So this is how Sweden treated their indigenous people still recently – after they colonised their lands, after they brutally fought their shamanistic religion, after they tried to wipe out their languages and put all effort into destroying their culture.

This is not forgotten.

A soft quiet Saturday morning along the Ladner South Arm Marsh. At different points long the way, the path was lined with bright red Mountain Ash berries. They stay on the bushes for a few months and are a favourite winter food for some birds, especially Bohemian and Cedar Waxwings. Last year, I saw a flock of about 15 Bohemians strip a fairly large bush in less than half an hour! A stop near the end of my walk at a farm to pick up some late season Aurora Highbush blueberries. Delectable!

A 10K walk along the Chattahoochee River today, including the much less traveled and unimproved east side trail. The change of seasons is showing in the forest. The goldenrod (not sure what the small, white wildflowers are) photo is worth a thousand sneezes because the green plants in the photo are ragweed. Three guesses at the red & green, three-leaf terror, which is burning out at the end of its season; hint-the Coasters sang about it. The young bucks are sharpening their antlers and pawing out urination spots to stake their territory. The photo of the Canadian geese is very close to a well-traveled trail, not a great place to settle, leading me to believe these are our early snowbirds. The resident, year round Canadian geese here, of which there are many, have claimed the best spots and much honking can be heard. A very nice Sunday walk!

Went to the western end of Brecons national park for the first time. Took a proper camera but it froze, so just the lacklustre images from my 'ethical' phone, boosted with a Mac editor - the price we pay for trying to do the right thing, eh?
The 'view East..' pic looks towards the noble Fan Gyhirych slightly right of centre, then behind it, slightly to left of centre the 'teeth' of Corn Du and Pen y Fan, the highest points of the national park. Then moving further left, about 20 miles away the ridge of the Black Mountains (from which I posted a few weeks' back) where the far left drop-off is Hay Bluff, which overlooks Hay-on-Wye.
There's something called the Beacons Way which joins all three massifs...

As I am visiting friends in the mountains, my 28k morning stroll was a quite a scenic one 😎
And it happens to be part of a 105k long "modern" pilgrim path called the Dag Hammarskjöldsleden.
round about 200km north of the Arctic Circle it can get rather cold already mid September. So I started my walk below freezing temperatures as one can guess from the first image.
If you want to see/read a bit more, there is another thread on this: Dag Hammarskjöldsleden

Yesterday we had an unusual day of walking. We went out to Gloucester on Cape Ann, not to take a walk along the shore but in its woods. We heard of its trails and carved boulders in the area known as Dogtown Commons a few years ago but never made it there. But summer is almost over officially and we still hadn't had our annual dinner of fried clams (with bellies) and our usual spot to have them was Woodman's of Essex, a neighboring town (Woodman's claims that fried clams were invented there in 1916). So we headed out to Cape Ann.

Dogtown was dense with trees and rocks and boulders. Also there were many paths heading off the main trails going to who knows where. We passed many cellar holes where homes used to be. The middle third of the hike had carved boulders but I'm saving their pictures for another time. Here's what the woods and trails looked like. I'll start out with my own picture of poison ivy (I take many). It is growing as a vine on the right of the tree; on the left is Virginia creeper. They will be getting more colorful soon.

A quote from Peg, "If I knew the trails were like this I would have worn my hiking boots."

I leave for SJPP Oct 18th. Need to get some long walks in before then. Today's was long (13 miles), with small elevation gain (600 ft) and no rocks/technical hiking. Waterton Canyon, south of Denver Colorado. Bonus points if you spot the bighorn sheep on the cliff.
Group question - next week's goal is 13 miles with a 2000 ft EG, which I hope to do a few times before leaving. Is that enough to handle the Napoleon route, or do I need to find a way to build in more elevation gain? TIA!

Nice camo on that sheep.
Short bike ride on the Chattahoochee River today, part of which is on a road. Saw a ten point buck in a creek beside the road...dead, hit by a car. Beautiful animal, very sad.

Probably. I found way back when I ran that I could finish a race about three times longer than my training. But do note that the Napoleon is about 25 km and 1,300 meters elevation gain. That's about 15 miles and 4,300 feet.

I've just returned from a walk with a local Camino group, from the Sydney CBD westwards over the Blue Mountains to the first town on the other side. About 260km if you took all the "scenic" options.
Leaving Sydney we followed the edge of the harbour, walked through parks and along river banks, so it was a rather curly route avoiding roads wherever we could.

Here are a few shots:

On Monday's walk I was fortunate enough to sneak up close enough to get a close up photo of a rock owl.

Today we went to one of favorite walks. We don't have a lot of agricultural land very close but there is a state park nearby and it contains a farm that was there previously. They lease the farm land, buildings and home to a farm family. One of the ways they make money is with an ice cream stand near the buildings that people are allowed to visit. Today we noticed a pun on a sign (there was no room for the preceding word "our" ).
PXL_20220928_171248602.jpg

There is a good variety of terrain at the park, pastures, fields of silage corn (maize), cranberry bogs, hills, woods, streams and ponds. This year the corn was harvested many a month earlier than normal. We had a summer drought and they must have wanted to get the corn while the plants were still green.

September has been better for rain. My lawn is green again.

So, I disappeared for a couple of weeks because we went backpacking to Isle Royale on Lake Superior National Park. This is such a remote, rugged and pristine island that has preserved its natural landscape and with its numerous trails it's possible to spend a couple of weeks exploring and having a great wilderness experience.

How wonderful. I've wanted for a long time to backpack there. We haved backpacked anywhere for five years. That last time though there was a bull moose across the lake.

Many years ago, pre-Peg, on a trail on another backpack a bull moose and I had a nose-to-nose encounter. After a stalemate where neither of us moved he conceded that I, as the uphill walker, had the right-of-way and he turned off the trail and disappeared into the forest.

Anyway, moving on to a current local walk, we took one of our usual short ones the other day. I turned on the Wikiloc app to measure the distance but then decided to also add pictures for waypoints and upload it to the cloud. There's nothing special in them except you can see that autumn colors are coming to New England.

You should visit! It's so special and unique, very unlike other National Parks. There are no bears, only moose, wolves, red fox, and other small creatures;-) The best time to go - in MHO, is August because the weather is more reliable, there are less - or no bugs, and the thimbleberries are everywhere for the picking!

A few days on the Florida panhandle coast. Beautiful sunsets, warm weather, nice walks, and the biking trail was not too crowded. The beautyberries (Callicarpa americana) are in full bloom. The reptiles don’t hibernate that far south, but are rarely seen because of the crowds (and diminishing habitat; the pink survey markers should be the state flower). 0B009299-4485-46C7-8481-4C2B31ADCC7E.jpeg C56C0478-FB1F-4C69-A4B7-965AD9A527A7.jpeg 33F4638F-2C19-4C5D-AB5D-E784FAEA600F.jpeg 02801456-8482-4EF6-8C84-74FD831C4C04.jpeg 33F4638F-2C19-4C5D-AB5D-E784FAEA600F.jpeg C22C7403-0A7A-4D23-B5AD-77F020CE7D00.jpeg 595952D4-7B17-4633-B200-348A862C05D4.jpeg 70666AAF-3E1F-4145-ABC7-70FFADB275B5.jpeg

Thanks for the jolt to my memory. In April we were in the area. Most of the time was spent on the Alabama coast but on the Florida panhandle is Eglin Air Force Base which has several campgrounds. We stayed at an undeveloped one.

Not a spectacular walk today, but I went to my newly acquired cabin at the edge of the wilderness - the probably most risky project of my life 🙈. Did some exploring with the dogs on the premises (240 acres, so a lot to walk actually). And now I will spend the first night inside the cabin as I finally got the keys this week .. the fireplace is hot, food is soon ready and a good wine waiting ... the best way to end a walking day 😎

Best wishes. But is it fair to say to post here when the only "walking" is done by your dogs? ;)
Well, they are sled dogs, so they support quite a lot and increase the walking speed considerably. But still I myself need to use my own legs ... and actually put some effort into being the brake. 😁

Pulling a tire around a local lake last night. After walking the Frances in sections I am preparing for the Norte and tirepulling is a good variation :) And with those views I am not complaining.

Better now, so these photos are from two short walks last Sunday and today. In between it has rained a lot. Autumn is here.
