It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Around the next corner could be something amazing.
Everyday places you've been before can still surprise you.

Old bench, chipped paint that has been repainted again and again
Sturdy it is not, but stable it is
Memories it holds of younger days and old
Thoughts of days gone by watching my children sit and talk
Trivial lessons taught, news of the day discussed, memories shared of years gone by
Veteran, Teacher, Neighbor missed a lot
No grandchildren to carry on these memories
We will hold him our hearts for eternity

Be on the Move 52 in 2022
Somewhere I saw a 52 week hiking challenge and thougtht I could do something like that. So I decided to make my own 52 week challenge. 52 weeks of being on the move some how like hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing or other way of moving, weather and calendar permitting I am going to challenge myself to move. The idea comes from 52 weeks in a year but they don't have to be done consecutively if weather or calendar don't permit being able to hike, kayak, snowshoe or some other way of moving. I will document my challenge on here. I have made a chart to log it incase anyone else would like to do it here is a pdf of the chart.
Beautiful warmer winter day to dust off our snowshoes and get fresh air and a hike in before lunch. Back to the Chuctanunda Creek Trail for another hike this time with snowshoes. Using the snowshoes did make it more of a workout thats for sure. It's been a year since I used them and I forgot how tired I would be afterwards. You don't realize it while you are on the trail but later that day and the next day my hips hurt. It did make walking in the snow more enjoyable though.

For our 4th hike of the year we are staying in Amsterdam and hitting the Chuctanunda Creek Trail. I have done this trail in the summer and fall but this is my first time in the winter. This is a nice easy mile hike from the parking area to the old factory. They city has placed signs on the strail with historic information on the old factory and surrounding area. The Chuctandunda Creek was a vital part of the development of Amsterdam. We only hiked a small section of the trail as there is much more to it.
