Ellen Zornes on walking: My two cents worth...
J.D. & Ellen Zornes speak as one on favorite place to walk: Their own New Columbia neighborhood, where they are protected by their great dog Lucy Toons. But on tracking activity, they are a divided family. She uses Harlovian metrics, his way is Mitzian. It's only a difference which unites them, however, as they are united on one principle: " . . . no matter which way it's measured, walking anywhere in our beautiful community is great exercise and time well spent!

By Ellen Zornes
On favorite walking areas, I think the Wizard of Oz Scarecrow (Squarecrow) said it best, pointing, "This way is a very nice way." Pointing the other way, "It's pleasant down that way too." Pointing both ways, "Of course, some people do go both ways."
That can truly be said of Columbia and Adair County. We are so fortunate to live amongst such beauty everywhere we turn...hills, valleys, trees, wildflowers, creeks even meadows. Or take the downtown route, walking our one of a kind historic square.
But JD's and my favorite place to walk is right here in our own New Columbia neighborhood. During many times of the day, we have little traffic on our paved streets that meander around bends, climb hills and dip into valleys. Or we can take the 'path less traveled' and walk through a meadow, cross the creek or even walk the creek bed. Our favorite walking partner is our dog, Lucy Toons. She much prefers the 'path less traveled.' That and walking in the snow.
For measuring my walks, I always have my Fitbit strapped to my wrist counting However, I don't get anywhere near the steps Jelaine Harlow does in a day.
JD, on the other hand, prefers Mitzi Bault's measurement by the bends and turns of the road.
But no matter which way it's measured, walking anywhere in our beautiful community is great exercise and time well spent!
