The usual morning hike to Carleton University for me.
I listen to Rush, I am a big fan of Rush.
The first track on my phone was Half the World from the Album: Test for Echo
"Half the world hates what half the world does everyday".
If I hike to university everyday, does half the world would hate me?
Maybe, only freaking insane people would hike in this cold. It was really pretty cold.
-23 degrees C including wind chill. But really? That's nothing. Ottawa can get as cold as -40 degrees C.
I walk in my bright red Columbia Snow Pants and a CloudVeil Ski Jacket.
My peach toque is a gift from Tessie last Christmas. Over all, it was a nice hike.
Stats: From MapMyRun App
Distance: 3.92 km, Duration: 55:27minutes
|Sunrise: Take from Fisher Avenue facing Carleton University|
|I have to take a selfie with Carleton University's Dunton Tower in the center. Its really off center, top of my head. Take at Fisher Avenue towards Cow Lane of Experimental Farm.|
|My path along Cow Lane. This section from Fisher Avenue is not plowed, so it is a challenging walk until you reach Ash Lane which is plowed and nicely cleaned everyday.|
|I decided to take a selfie because I love my peach toque given by Tessie.|
|This sign is in Cow Lane(un plowed trail) , and it is about 50 meters until I hit Ash Lane and Cow Lane intersection which is plowed well.|
|The intersection of Cow Lane and Ash Lane. Here starts the nicely cleaned/plowed trail until I hit Prince of Wales Drive.|
The walk was beautiful, I enjoyed the scenery. It was a bit windy coming from the west, I feel my ear a bit frozen, so I have to wrap my head with a scarf under the toque. The sunrise is amazing warms me up.
So, I guess, hiking to Carleton University is a fun activity that I love to do everyday.
Does the other half hates what I do every morning? I hope not!
