Side of Dirt Road(445.2) to Cebolla Alternate(452.6) to Picnic area of of Rt 117(18.8) 26.2 Miles Total: 374.5
On Star Wars Day write my blog in Yoda speak do I. Long and tiring it gets. Lots to say about the happenings of today, yes hmmm.
Woke up this morning freezing it was. Forgot did I to sleep with my Sawyer filter. Huge, stupid, costly mistake did I make. Ruined the filter is. Buy a new one I must. Pulled to the dark side I almost was. Overcame the anger did I.
Hiking before 7am Turtle and I were. Good time to a water source did we make. Dead crow in the water found we. Drank that water we did not. Another water source was there.
Shiloh and Mangus caught up to us when we were leaving, yes hmmm. Different plans for the hike had they. Convoluted paved road walks in their future I foresaw. Follow them down that hard lonely path we could not.
7.3 dirt road miles leads to anger
Cebolla alternate route is the path to the light. 4.5 miles of trail to be had. Off the dirt road will it lead us. Shiloh and Mangus forged a dark path of their own, yes hmmm. 8 miles of paved road planned they to walk. Hitchhike to town Shiloh did. Find a dentist he must. Tooth pain and suffering did I sense. Make up the missing miles he shall. Decide Mangus to walk the highway until meeting back with the trail, hmmmm.
Turtle started down the alternate path alone he did. Longer break required I. Pain and suffering of my foot was I experiencing. Stretch did I. Healed by the force my foot was. Guided by the force the alternate was crushed by me. Alternate route through Cebolla Canyon amazing views were seen. Good afternoon it was. Pictures you shall see below.
Trees and clouds a happy Jedi do they make
Pueblo stone house dated to 1200AD added onto in 1400, yes hmmmm
Petroglyph dated to 1200AD
Happy to not drink this was I
Back to dirt road hiking I was
Volcanic activity we approached
Completed the day by walking 6 miles on pavement, yes hmmmm. Pain and suffering of feet continue it will. Tomorrow hike 22 paved miles my feet will. Happy I will not be. Camped are we in a picnic area alongside the highway. Picnic tables, trash cans, pit toilets happy they make us. Warmer this night is. Sleepy am I. Enjoy the post you must.
Pure luxury was it
Decide on one quote I could not.
“All his life he looked away...to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing.”
“In a dark place we find ourselves, and a little more knowledge lights our way”
“You will find only what you bring in”
“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.”
