Take a walk

A couple of blogs I read have had recent posts that I really want to share. They both honor place–in terms of appreciating your physical place and utilizing it more.

The first is from New Urban Habitat. The post focuses on walking and more specifically just how walkable your community is. The post links to Walkscore, an online app that will tell you how walkable your neighborhood is. My neighborhood rates a 57.

The second link is from Hip Mountain Mama. It’s a challenge to explore something new in your own backyard. It’s a great reminder that there is always something to be found just outside your door.

  1. What great sites! I did our current house, got a 30 (thought it was weird it didn’t even factor in the river trails) and our new house – it got a big fat zero. I guess that’s b/c we’ll be out in the country! I guess we’ll be exploring our backyard more than walking! 🙂
