A Rocky Place

A new month, a new day, a new camp. I had to compete with about 500 rocks for a sleeping space, but we were again in a lovely place. Jessica and I hiked to the top of a hill next to our camp while we waited for the trekkersí return. We saw a number of beautiful flowers, and a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks wheeling above us. It was so great being able to just look at this hill and think, ďI want to climb to the top of that.Ē And being able to do it! Itís public land, and to think, anyone in the USA can go right out there and climb on top of that hill too, but there wasnít anybody else there, why not? Because people donít know how easy it is to go and do things like that. But that is our mission (which Iím sure you already know if youíve navigated this far on the website), letting people know that almost a third of this great country belongs to YOU, and you can go use it whenever you want.
