An Afternoon Walk at A Nature Center

More walking is in our future, with BOTH of us now owning a Fitbit.  My Fitbit Flex arrived from Amazon on Tuesday, and Bob purchased a Fitbit Charge HR at Walmart on Wednesday.

We went for a walk at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary in Jamestown, NY yesterday afternoon, soon after Bob came home from work. We walked for approximately 2 miles (1 1/2 hours), following mainly the Yellow and Orange Trails.  What a beautiful afternoon for a walk!

We walked around Big Pond and Spatterdock Pond.

This is Big Pond.
Water used to fill the pond.

I spotted this butterfly, while walking around Spatterdock Pond.

This boardwalk is one of my favorite features at Audubon.

The highlight of our walk was seeing a muskrat toward the end of our walk.

a muskrat!
I had never personally seen a muskrat.

Bob and I each have a goal of 10,000 steps each day.  Since Tuesday afternoon I have walked 24,283 steps.  Since Wednesday afternoon Bob has walked 27,065 steps.  Yesterday, I *almost* reached my goal with 9,754 steps!

    Great set of pictures… We love walking –but the hills around her sometime Kill me…. ha ha… BUT–if I hadn’t have been getting an average of 34-40 floors most every day, I could NEVER have hiked to Hen Wallow Falls in the Smokies recently.. Got 142 floors on that hike… GADS…

    Keep up the good work.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

      We are looking forward to a hike up Watkins Glen Gorge in NY. It will be interesting to see the number of floors climbed during that hike.
