I'm walking (not really a hike, flat easy path) on 28 Dec on the Lee river valley in Essex, and then on 28 trying out a new hike between Amersham and Chesham in Buckinghamshire. Should be good!

Very nice ski yesterday, after abandoning the first plan when the trail was rock, twig and otherwise debris filled. It even snowed while we were out, beautiful ski!

I've just been doing some walking around the area where I live. When the weather starts getting a bit nicer I plan on doing some hiking in the nearby Umpqua National Forest and the North Umpqua River Trail.

I'm doing the Cornish coastal path between St Ives and Lelant on Monday. It's a fab walk, about five miles and very up and down and the scenery it other-worldly.

New poles, hiking with a pack, you all are getting out there!

I enjoyed another beautiful sunset on the way home yesterday...been getting one walk a week in lately! Guess that's how it goes this time of year, it's harder to walk in when it gets dark so early, it's cold out, and I have gym classes to get to!

We got in a couple of mountain bike rides, one to the top of Mt St Helena north of Napa (beautiful day, lots of hikers!) and yesterday we did the trail near Auburn, woods, meadows, nice trail, more bikers than hikers on that one.

I'm hiking up Sleeper Mt. today. It is a little known mountain that is one of the 100 Highest Peaks in New England. There will be snow on the trail, and it will be beautiful. I am looking forward to the quiet and beauty of hiking in snow again.

Will be "hiking" to and from work, since no bike....went bike shopping yesterday, but all they had were large frame bikes, so I really couldn't get a good idea of what I'd like, although I did get a lot of info about the bike components. Will have to research brands, etc and see what looks like a good fit.

Hiked around Verdi/Dog Valley on the CA/NV border north of Tahoe. 7.5 miles all told.

Ice, hope you get to do your plan next weekend, I've enjoyed the Whoa Nellie Deli a few times, always something new and unexpected in a Mobil station. It's also a nice place to stretch...

The plan was to do solo trip to the Eastern Sierra for a couple of days to hike or ride up White Mountain from the gate along with some side hikes in Tuolumne Meadows and finally hitting up the Whoa Nellie Deli in that Mobil gas station that I've been driving by for (ahem) decades.

At least that was the plan for this weekend until I decided there were too many things that needed to taken care of at home first. Now the plan is for next weekend, but the forecast over the next week is calling rain with snow at the higher evaluations. I'll keep watching the weather to see if I can still pull this off or modify it into a low key road trip.
