hiking: Hiking New Zealand's Kepler Track with Feng Shui Consultant Laura Cerrano - 11/16/18 11:00 AM
In the past two weeks I have had the honor of exploring the two majestic islands of New Zealand.  For this particular post I'm highlighting the Kepler track (one of the great walks). The Kepler Track is located in Fiorland National Park along the far west region of the South Island. 
The Kepler track is a 60 km loop that takes you through lush forests, lakes and through the Alpines. Because your in an Alpine environment, its important to remember you could be exposed to heavy rain, snow, and freezing temperature. Due to this, wearing waterproof gear and having solid trekking boots is vital. Trampers can stay in 4 … (1 comments)

hiking: Hiking California: Will Rogers State Historical Park - 06/23/18 06:05 PM
While in California during the month of June, I've been providing private Feng Shui consultations and workshops, I also made sure to save time to enjoy the great outdoors to hike. This time around, I swung by the Will Rogers State Historical Park in Pacific Palisades, CA. 
I prefer not to write too much about what I saw, and instead provide you with just a couple of photos because it really deserves your in-person presence. I will say this, the land was once occupied by the Gabrielino/Tongva Nation until the 1800s due to colonization from Spain. Over the years this area remained untouched until the … (12 comments)

hiking: Hiking California: Joshua Tree National Park - 12/19/17 12:28 PM
Joshua Tree National Park is an amazing place to explore! This landscape serves as a wonderful outlet for creativity, exploring, and just being. 
 
Yucca brevifolia, (Joshua Tree) is a member of the Agave family. Years ago the Joshua tree was recognized by American Indians for its useful properties: tough leaves were worked into baskets and sandals, and flower buds and raw or roasted seeds made a healthy addition to the diet. The local Cahuilla have long referred to the tree as “hunuvat chiy’a” or “humwichawa;” both names are used by a few elders fluent in the language.
This vast desert is a Nationally protected ecosystem. The … (3 comments)

hiking: Hiking Long Island NY: Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge - 11/18/17 02:31 PM
I've lived on Long Island NY for 33 years, thinking I've explored most of it and this tiny island continues to be full of wonderful discoveries. Allowing myself to take a break from providing Feng Shui Consultations, I decided to treat myself to a 7 mile hike throughout the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge. 
They have a center that is full of information on the local hikes, wildlife you could spot and even provide a museum and lecture center. I have to say, it was pretty impressive. 
Inside the Museum
Entrance fee into the refuge for hiking is free. And they are open all season long and is great … (7 comments)

hiking: The New York Minnewaska Mountains Called and I Answered - 09/24/17 01:07 PM
Over the weekend I had back to back feng shui consultations within Ulster County and Westchester County, New York. After my consultation in Marlboro, NY I headed over to Minnewaska State park Sam's Point to get in a full days worth of hiking. In total, it added up to 5 hours. That’s a lot of exploring! 
I started off exploring the Ice Caves which were pretty cool! Literally. Maneuvering though them allowed you to have a sense of great curiously, while your mind tended to drift into a touch of horror movie thinking, LOL! 
I hope your not afraid of tight spaces.
After, I … (5 comments)

hiking: Wildwood Canyon Park Hiking In Burbank California - 08/26/16 03:10 AM
 
Yesterday, I went on a hike in Wildwood Canyon Park, Burbank CA. Soon after parking, a deer made an appearance, starting the hike off with wondrous sites. The hike I did was about a 1 mile long plus, yet do not be fooled.
The steepness of this hike is sure to increase your heartrate and make your legs work extra hard. If you wanted, you could hike for even longer with trails covering the vast landscape. 
If you are looking for great views and a great workout, Wildwood Canyon is the hiking trail for you. To avoid the hot sun went hiking, you could consider arriving early in … (4 comments)
