One Step at a Time

 I was sick with a bad cold for most of the break so it felt great to get outside and enjoy the fresh air today.  Peg and I have a membership to the ski/snowshoe centre here in Charlesbourg.  The land is owned by a group of people who allow members to ski and snowshoe on their land during the winter.  The membership fee we pay goes toward the cost of maintaining the paths.  It's only about a 10 minute drive from our place and it's a beautiful area. 
We managed to complete the 5.8 km loop, hills and all.  I took this picture with my iPhone when we got to the top.  I was surprised to get the shot on the first try considering I was using the back camera.  Lucky I guess. 
We haven't been since last year and are feeling a bit out of shape as we nurse our stiff muscles.  The good news is that with each next step it'll get that much easier.    Here's to getting healthier, one step at a time.
