Some heavy lifting on the trail
Finally got to spend a good chunk of time of the trail this afternoon. Dinner might be a little late but I rounded a milestone.
I can lose myself easily in wood I know so well. Each day I pick a lanmark as a goal. A fallen tree, a specific rock, or the bottom of the hill can all serve as goals. I have wanted to pass a rock formation for a long time. Forever it felt as if I would never get there. Every day adding just twenty or thirty feet of trail. Today I made it
I spent juts over two hours. I took 4,634 steps and walked 3,539 feet. I spent much of the time with a rake. The body starts to ache in ways not possible doing this work.
Learning isn't easy either. It takes work.
