Becca and I did an extra-long hike this morning. We left our car in the Sunset Area parking lot and headed up the trail leading to higher elevations. Instead of going to the top, though, we skirted the flank of the mountain before dropping down again into the lower desert. The semi-lofty heights are represented by the first three images here. We did a little bushwhacking to avoid encounters with other hikers, but on the way back in we bumped into a man hiking alone and a man and woman who annoyingly were stalled on a narrow portion of trail and didn't move in the least to give us room to maneuver around them. They were friendly, and I said "Good morning" to them, but I felt a bit aggravated by their thoughtlessness
That first photo, with the contrast between the darkish sky and the sunny trail, is especially nice.
Thanks, Dr. K. :)
Are you still there, Rob? Suddenly missing from FB and Scribblers! Hope you are OK.
Aw, thanks, Tonia. Yes, still here. Everything's fine. Just a bit fed up with social media. I did manage to stay on FB twice as long as last time--three whole months! I appreciate your concern. Take care. :)
I "love" it when bicyclists stop on the side of bike trails to talk or retrieve their water bottles and block half or more of the trail. To be honest, it's usually the "weekend warriors" who pull this thoughtless stunt. Regardless, I agree with you Packrat: it's aggravating.
Rob, would it be OK if I shared your reason for leaving Scribblers? to prevent all those speculations...I love knowing that you are OK, just fed up - I know the others will be relieved too
I will miss you ! :)
Scott: We've had our share of encounters with thoughtless mountain bikers gabbing on the trail; and because Becca is afraid of mountain bikes it's always a stressful situation. I guess it's the same phenomenon as shoppers leaving their grocery carts sideways in the aisles while they go into a trance reading product ingredients. :)
Thanks for the good thoughts. Of course you can share my reason for leaving Scribblers. I'll miss you, too. All the best.
