Return to civilization

Woohoo! I'm back in "civilization." Actually, that should read "un-civilization." I have spent so much time since the middle of May doing 14-day stints in our National Forests that it is becoming a way of life that I truly love. Am I at heart a hermit? Possibly.

The only fly in my ointment has been the inability to get on and stay on the internet long enough to post email and to blog. Getting connected to the internet is, at best, an 'iffy' thing when one is deep in a forest, 15-20 miles from any place. Once connected, the signals tend to go as fast as they come.

I spent 16 days in Coconino NF, 14 days in Kaibab NF, 2 days in Grand Canyon NF, and 14 days in Tahoe NF. Right now I am in town doing laundry, emptying and filling tanks, and getting my Walmart fix.

I have been in some of the most beautiful settings of my life. Growing up Texan gave me an appreciation for green mountains. Having lived in Virginia among the Appalachains for the past 30 years, I have had a renewed appreciation for the wide open spaces of Texas. Spending winters lately in the Sonoran Desert has made me more aware of the lush greenery of the northern mountains. When on the road, I have to force myself to pay attention to my driving because there is so much beauty out there to be seen and absorbed.

The past 14 days in the Tahoe NF just off I-80 have been a treasure. The breathtaking beauty of the Hampshire Rocks Campground has more than made up for the road and railroad noise. I just learned early on to stuff my ears with cotton whenever I wanted to be outdoors--which is most of the time. (I really think California should have studied the layout of the land a bit better when the interstate was being planned.)

Gogo is demanding a walk, so I shall say, "TTFN."
