Daily Nature Walk – Fall Equinox


Fall Equinox Rituals/Traditions

I’m learning to do more than what I say so my roommate and I took the kids out to the park on Saturday. I was telling her about a trail that I saw on Google Maps and thought we should check it out. We decided on an adventure but of course since this was unusual terrority it took us nearly 2 hours to get through a quarter of the trail. My phone was dying but I managed to get a neat shot of the sunset going up the hill.

image

We also learned some interesting facts about the Neversink Mountains. Railways, hotels, and a speakeasy in the 1900s.

Second time around the kids new exactly where we were going and we even almost ventured off into another area but they got scared and wanted to go back on the regular route. We also manged to get through it this time within an hour. Probably 30 minutes if we didn’t take the mini detour.

image

Next time I’m going to record our walk and share with you but I wanted to kick off the Fall Equinox with a Nature Walk ( Lil J calls it ‘The Adventure’ lol because I allow them to pick up stick and rocks and toss them around as they pleased). I wish I could get a baby carrier to take the new girl, Bella 4 & Isaac 2 months, that I’m babysitting on the trail. I also been dying to do some babybwearing too! Plus I doubt my husband would babysit while I get the toddlers out. ( Imagine that ;P )

image

The trail is not just for hiking.  We also saw bikers and dogs.  I look forward to exploring more by myself. The kids watch too many scary movies to go exploring. Lol

I see this being a daily or every other day walk which is about a mile long. As im typing this my joints are yelling at me, but I know my body needs to re-adjust to walking daily again. I also found a flat plan surface with grass that would be perfect for sunrise or sunset yoga or even running a few laps around.

image

Im still looking for a great spot to view the city. I have to go higher and I will on a day that we don’t go so late when the sun is disappearing and nighttime is creepy up on us. There is no electricity so that means no lights.

I am a Capricorn and nature is where I can let go and relax. My thoughts aren’t rustling and racing. I can ground myself and I plan on having the whole family do this on Saturday with a mini picnic within the flat plain. I would also love to meditate alone and enjoy the fall breeze.

During the season transition the trees are going to be beautiful and I cant wait to share with you. ( Hopefully with a new camera ) A mild and simple detox will be coming up since I started drinking icy tea again and my kidneys could use a break. I found this awesome app that reminds you every two hours to drink water of however much your goal is. My goal is to drink a gallon a day.

I see myself coming up here to journal and self-reflect, spend more time with family. This is how I celebrate the new season.

What are you doing this fall (that makes you happy) for Fall?
