Let us leave a splendid legacy for our children…let us turn to them and say, this you inherit guard it well, for it is far more precious than money… and once destroyed, nature’s beauty cannot be repurchased at any price. ~ Ansel Adams
I got a decent early start this morning at 6:30. It’s just too cold to go before that. It was all about hiking this morning The only view came from a cut in the trees were the electricity goes through.
I did come across something pretty interesting this morning. I was hiking along and lo and behold there was a ladder. And a good thing too it’s a pretty steep cliff. The latter was securely attached to the rocks it did not move at all as I climbed down it.
I was taking a little lunch break and eating my peanut butter crackers at this Vista, when I Southbounder came along and he took my picture. I have to say that Sobos (South bounders) have been incredibly friendly and nice.
As I was hiking along I came across this sign that said The Lookout with an arrow pointing up a very rough dirt path. I looked in the guidebook and it said the Lookout was a privately owned cabin that was open to hikers for camping. I was not needing to camp but the guidebook also said “a recently rebuilt ladder leads to a lookout on top of the cabin that has great views in ” that was all I needed to hear and I headed up the rough path. Boy oh boy am I glad I did.
After the lookout it was down to meet up with Hugh. And let me tell you the path was incredibly overgrown.
