For Becca’s Sunday Trees
Exactly after 3 weeks, we decided to take a long hike again on a nearby mountain. A safe haven considering other tourist places in these difficult times. Due to the difficulty level we were sure of meeting less people on our way and even if we meet some they will most likely be locals.
The smell near the pine forest was very peculiar and inviting. We stepped into it to see the most popular of wild edible mushrooms, the Chanterelle. The above photo doesn’t do it justice as was highly magnified. The mixed aroma in that forest was just majestic. I don’t think we will get time during the week to go back and pick some chanterelle.
We took a very short break after reaching height around 600 moh. The last section was quite steep and the sun on our head was not very supporting. Yes it was a hike under the sun. 😎
After hiking for 3 hours and covering 9.6 km we reached our destination which was more than 900 meter above sea level.
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.~
Covid 19 situation made me cancel at least 8 of my international trips (more for my husband) until now. Instead of spending time on social media and covid news, we strictly follow the measures given by our health authorities. Ignoring extra covid information had put less pressure on our minds.
One step ahead we decided to make a routine for our daily walk. We don’t regret as we both have shed weight and increased muscle. Daily walk prepare us for long and steep hikes. Yesterday we covered around 19 km (according to google map).

I am aware of the fact that the photo quality is not the best as I do not carry my camera on hikes. I hope you don’t mind either.

You cannot do silhouettes in fantasy. Ah, no, you must be faithful. It is, the art, a, what you call, paradox. It is always that you must be simple, and then, if you are simple, you will stimulate the imagination of the observer. ~Ugo Mochi
For Sunday Trees
Our default weather is back in action. It’s cold and rain from last night temperaure is around 11degree. Sigh!
She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language. And birds fluttered around her, writing “yes” in the sky.~
Sometimes we get busy in things we can’t bypass which means less time for hobby. I couldn’t get enough time to work on a post for last couple of days but all was for a good cause and so no regrets.
In the new normal, we try to maintain a rotuine of taking walk everyday. No hard exercising is possible as the gyms are still closed, a preferred choice is walking for atleast an hour ++. Here are some images from our recent walks.

They get better.
