Coot Lake: Your Favorite New Place for an Afternoon Walk

It’s a flat lake area that houses coots, mallards, and lots of other ducks. A lot of the lake actually acts as a wildlife preserve for wetland species, so expect to see a fair amount of ducks and birds. You may even see a Northern Harrier, which is the most threatened nesting bird species in Boulder County. It’s also a very popular gathering place for dog walkers and runners, who can be seen pacing the trails in the area. Although,... Read More

I biked up Boulder Canyon last weekend, and the beautiful colored trees made it a real treat. The Boulder Canyon trail can be accessed by traveling west on the Boulder Creek path. It goes along the highway for a short period, but then it starts following alongside a beautiful river. In fact,... Read More

Walk your way to joy! Finding peace, one step at a time.

September 11th, 2014

One of the greatest challenges we find along our life journey or spiritual path is to feel love and compassion for ourselves. It requires that we treat ourselves well, and give ourselves time and space to be still, to re-fuel, to rest and to gather our resources.’Self-care’ is a term we hear a lot now, and it means just this – finding ways, no matter how small and seemingly unimpressive, to find some peace for a moment. In this busy and pressured lifestyle we often have, we need this time to rest and to remember who we are and how we operate without the busy-ness. When we choose to... Read More
