Day 21

During my hikes since I have been here I have come across probably close to ten of these Mylar balloons.  I've stopped counting.  It isn't like they came all at once.  Some have been out here for years and years.  They do not deteriorate very fast.  Much like the plastic bottles and aluminum cans which are more abundant than they should be.  They will outlast us all.  Our legacy.

 This too will outlast us all and someday may become another Grand Canyon?  
Water at work in the desert.

There are not that many places to sit and rest so when I come across one I take advantage of it.
What am I thinking about?

How to play this ball and still make par?


  1. Yep I can believe you find stuff like that in the middle of knowhere, I have myself before now

  2. lots of solitude out there, even with the 'junk'.

  3. Yes, that "junk" is very bad in nature. Is there a hole to get the ball in? I like that third photo of the sand waves.

  4. Jim has a growing collection of those balloons that he has picked up over the years at Panoche.
