Things are always interesting on the trail - the scenery, the wildlife, the sounds, the fresh air.
Like today, I found the skull of a small animal right in the middle of the tread. Hmm…
If you take it slow enough, which I usually do, you see all sorts of cool rocks, flowers, animal tracks, bugs.
And, if the day isn’t interesting enough, I can find a way to make it more so. For instance, by moving along at a good pace, clipping my foot on a jagged root and catching air before coming down on my left side.
I have a nice new strawberry on my left thigh and knee that will be nice and purple by the end of the day. Who needs a tattoo? The trails always leave their mark on me.
