Hike luck lately

I spend most of my time by myself. I figure that if I waited for other people to have time to do things I like to do, then I waste all my time waiting when I could have been doing.

Anyone for a hike?

“No. It’s too hot outside. Maybe in the fall when the weather cools down.”

“No time. I have kids now.”

So I go alone on hikes that should be easier or safer (I don’t think it’s smart to hike alone.)
I went to a trail that’s only three miles around some pretty cool rock formations. It’s a good bit away from town, and there’s no cell service in the area. There’s a stretch that isn’t visible from the road, and people who stop only take quick pics and then hit the road again. They don’t walk the full route.

I thought about all of that as a goat darted past me.
[i]Huh…what’s he running from?[/i]
Then I realized there are mountain lions in the same area. I went back to my car.

I tried another trail that’s 11 miles around, but always in sight of the road. It’s a little patch of nature I run sometimes. At the spot where paved path met the dirt trail, a cop walked out from behind some trees.

“Should I not be here?” I asked.

He told me they had reports of a woman screaming. They were checking the area and said I should stick to the paved part. Creepy.

Anyway, that was last week. I’m going to see if I have better luck this week. I just get tired of my usual haunts, and feel like branching out. I need new sights.

[@1118208,GrayWolf] I have dogs, but one is very lazy and doesn’t like walking more than a mile with me, and the other is terrified of car rides. 😅
