The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Day 132

On this day's hike I flushed out a deer from where she was lying down.  Of course she didn't stick around for her picture to be taken so all I have to show is where she bedded down.  You don't think deer to be in the desert but they are wherever there is a bit of shade.

I passed up the hillside covered with the lavender colored flowers the other day but found another.

I was talking with a lady yesterday who said her neighbor had a rock stuck in his boot sole.  
He pulled it out and it was a fossilized shark's tooth!  I've been looking ever since.


  1. No I can't imagine what a deer is doing there. You find them mostly in woods here.

  2. I would never have thought a deer would be there, and would never think I would find a shark's tooth in my foot, no matter where I was.
