Give a mile

Day 337 of #LiveWell2017 Here is an unconventional way to give to people who have life-threatening illnesses or are receiving palliative care. It's giving their loved ones travel miles for "flights of compassion" so that the sick and dying can be visited by friends or family, often one last time.

Hello, sunshine…

Day 129 of #LiveWell2017 We've had a nice little streak of warm, sun-filled days lately, so we took advantage and hiked up to Mirror Lake today.
