“If you are in a bad mood go for a walk. If you are still in a bad mood, go for another walk.” – Hippocrates

(This blog is a continuation of Walking East At Indian Run Reservoir)

There is a change in the temperament of scenery when shifting from east to west while hiking. The air changes with where one faces the breeze. The light changes as well, becoming brighter as one walks toward the afternoon sun. So too does the attitude of the hiker change.

I was not in a bad mood on this walk as the opening quote from Hippocrates might suggest. But, I found that my attitude having spent the time in thought in the snow had improved nonetheless. Like changing direction from east to west, everything was a little different... and even better than when I started.
