My Kind of Solitude

My husband and I have been hiking together for years. It’s what we do together. Or at least we leave and return to the trailhead at the same time. He is almost a foot taller than I, and a few years younger. His long legs carry him quickly over the hill. He is on a mission. I, on the other hand, am out for a quiet walk in nature. I stop to take a photo here and there, then sit on the bench at the top of the hill taking in the stillness that only comes when no one else is nearby.

Babbling Brook

Eventually, I catch up to my husband and we walk back together.


Hiking the De Anza Trail

Hiking is one of the things I look forward to doing more of when I retire.
