I got prepared for my 12:40 class at 11:55 and decided to go for it. I walked around one of the loops on campus that skirts the river, goes through piney woods, and comes back out near the gym across the street from my office.
It took 30 minutes so I made it to class only just on time, but now I’ve done my walk for the day. The woods were all green and gold on this sunny hot day, the sunlight bouncing off of leaves of all shapes and sizes.
The trail goes along a river. I heard a lot of raucous blue jays in the woods, but mostly it was just quiet and peaceful.
