Finally, one of my walks, took me to the home of my first blogging friend, the incredible, amazing sensational, Leslie Gerein. I have been following her since November 2009. I discovered her blog when googling Banff walks, when I visited my son at that time. It is through her, that I found the world of blogging and so many new friends across the world. Unfortunately she no longer has time for her blog. She is too busy out in the mountains eating up the kilometres.
I would love to read your comment.
