Weeks Ago

I don't know why there is a HIKERS LOGBOOK at the top of Valencia Peak.

After all, the trail is only 2 miles long. Granted, it is two miles of hot, dusty, straight-up-hill hiking, so that is something, but it's not like hiking for two miles is really an accomplishment.

As we came upon the end of the trail, we stumbled across a few people writing in the HIKERS LOGBOOK what I firmly believe was a brainstorming session for a poem. I regret that I did not write a poem, a short story or the like. But what I regret the most was letting the people I was with woo me off the mountain before I had the chance to read what previous hikers had penned. I was foolish, I admit.

I'll just have to find something else to laugh at.

Well, there is another route that takes 6 miles. Maybe they should only let those hikers sign the log...

Of course you could always redo your 2 mile hike. Maybe there is yet another fabulous poem to read!

A least you left our RS's mark on something that most likely will stand through out the ages.
