Solitude was the word of the day today. It’s Sunday. It is also a rest day, so I went for a hike into Death Box Hollow Canyon. Just a few miles, no real equipment, no pack. The trail follows a stream; I’m just going for a pleasure hike. I stop several places to enjoy the view of yet another beautiful Red Rock Canyon…and to enjoy the sounds. There really are no sounds other than the sighing of the breeze though the small trees and the babbling of the brook. It’s magical. I will miss it very, very much when I have to return to my job in New York City. In the city you can never tune out the noise….it is always there. I will enjoy this while I can. I hike until I have a clear pool along side the stream and then I remove my clothes and go for quick swim…..I pause on the way out to again admire the shifting colors of the canyon. Yes, I will find it difficult to return to the hustle and bustle of a large city…..but once in a while I will close my eyes and be back in this canyon….all alone…..listening…..and swimming.

Stay well….Richard
