As I spent much of my summer consuming and making through the #clmooc, I was fascinated by several postings of the "Learning Walk". I believe that truly observing what is around you can certainly increase your understanding of the environment you are part of. Maybe it is the "Slow down and take time to smell the roses" mentality a learning walk inspires.
Much of my summer was spent literally running around the tri-state area, fulfilling my family obligations of moving, while also driving to the Jersey Shore daily to work the Extended School Year. It did not leave much time for my own personal "walking" time, but I was determined to create a modified "Walk".
Driving past a pile of logs inspired me - How many piles can I find represented during my summer? With my camera in hand, I would stop traffic just to get a picture.
