As the season changes, the trail changes. The colors are different and the things that you can see are different. It’s also not as humid! Our weekly Dirty Girl Trail Club has been maintaining our momentum and drawing more Dirty Girls out to the trail. We have also been joined by some Dirty Dudes! We have been focused on increasing our fitness level and getting our heart rates up. We have also enjoyed the company and comradery out on the trail. It has been wonderful getting to know new people and long time acquaintances more throughly. I am excited about the accountability that comes with scheduling an event and having others count on you to be there. Big plus on the whole Club theory! Plus, we are exchanging and trading information about activities, options and life in general as we go along. One such resource is the Friends of the Kaw website http://kansasriver.org a handy resource about accessing the Kansas River which Dirty Girls love!
Two of us Dirty Girls hit Lake Perry on Saturday and enjoyed the warm, clear fall day on Lake Perry. The migratory birds are interesting, currently the black wing-tipped pelicans are in town. They are pretty amazing, their wing span is six feet from tip to tip! Of course I continue to love the Great Blue Herons, they are sort of mysterious. They appear graceful in flight but they are awkward at take off and they make an amazing ugly, croaking noise! Julie and I enjoyed our afternoon, we trekked down a little creek that joins Lake Perry. Pretty cool to be able to paddle back into an area that generally can’t be accessed. We also paddled into the wind to an old boat ramp to explore. Good day.
Hope you have been getting outside to move and enjoy the fall weather! If you haven’t, get on it!! Grab a Dirty Girl and go outside!!
