There are lots of reasons to travel around our town under your own steam. For example, the weather.

There is nothing better to make you feel alive and part of the world than to be outdoors experiencing the weather. The sun warming your back. A spritz of rain on your face. Sometimes both at once! And always the movement of the air, sometimes a gentle caress, sometimes, like today, jostling and careening through the valley like a herd of buffalo.

Being out in the weather for long enough to get where you’re going gives you time to reflect on where that air has been, where that rain will go next, what that sunshine sets in motion in all the green around us.
