Look Up, Look Around, Look Down!

My dear friend and fellow Nordic walking enthusiast Lindy Smith is fond of saying “Look Up” when you’re walking.  She loves clouds and blue skies plus it’s a good reminder to get your chin up and look where you are going.

So last week on a beautiful blue bird day here in Bozeman, Montana I “looked up” and saw first a pair of eagles soaring above me and about a mile later the local red tail hawks playing in the wind.

I “looked around” me and saw mountains everywhere, I believe I can see 5 different ranges from my center point in the Gallatin Valley.


I “looked down” and was surprised by the first crocus of the season.  Do you think the white one was on purpose or just a surprise?


Spring has sprung and wonder surrounded me every step of the way, I only needed to look up, look around and look down to find it.
