Be Active - A Winter Walk

"Iím loving the Ten Minute Walk exercise. Iím currently uploading my pics to my media album adding sound effects and such. I like how easy the site is to navigate through and using the example videos you canít go wrong. I intend to carry on with my media album for now and whatís great is I can do it in my own time. Thank you Start2! "


As most of the trees and shrubs will have lost their leaves you’ll also be able to more readily touch the bark and feel the difference between the various textures. Try touching a few different barks to see how they compare. Leaves on evergreens are also interesting to touch. You will notice that most of the leaves are sharp, although some can be soft to the touch. The previously mentioned pine cones have woody and faceted textures. Of course, you’ll find that some surfaces can be slippery if frozen, feeling cold, and sometimes very wet. Some surfaces could be quite decayed.


The trees themselves might be covered in frost or snow, making them look even more attractive. Look for the way that snow and frost pick out the lines of the branches, down to the tiniest twigs. You might see icicles hanging from branches and twigs in very cold weather. Notice how the light shines off the ice, and how fast they might melt if the sun strikes them.
