A fish skeleton greeted me on my walk around Sloan's
I may not be a member of The Walking Dead cast, but I enjoy watching the program. Amazingly enough, it's one of my favorites. I like the survival aspect, but the nasty zombies--not so much.
This late in the game, I fear the AMC show may not be around much longer. Most of the original actors have died (left.) Meanwhile, I'm preparing myself for its eventual demise.
Today, while walking around Sloan's Lake in Cheyenne, a Walking Dead fish that had washed ashore greeted me.
It's a new goal of mine to walk at least a mile each day and increase the distance as time allows. That may not seem like a lot of movement to those of you who run marathons. But for me, it's real progress and it feels great.
After sitting at a desk all day, whether it's writing my books or working at the office, fresh air and sunshine is a welcome break.
I prefer walking in places where I can enjoy nature to its fullest. Those of you who live in the Cheyenne/Laramie area, and are in better condition than I am, may want to visit my niece Rebecca Walsh's website, "Hike Like a Woman," where she offers backpacking experiences, hiking adventures and mountain retreats for outdoors enthusiasts. She owns and operates Laramie Basecamp, a sports store in Laramie, WY. Becky and her husband are also army veterans and have two adorable sons.
Come with me and I'll take you on a brief "photo" tour of Sloan's Lake.
Do you have a favorite place to walk?

lounging on shore. My mom often drove me, my
sister and my friend Valerie to Sloan's Lake to swim.
