Tick Tock

Oops, forgot to actually upload this last month. I’m a bad blogger!

.

I park my car at the trailhead for a quick sunset stroll in the Everglades.  The sun has finally given up its fiery reign and the temperature is starting to cool.  While tossing on a spare long-sleeve shirt, a car pulls into the parking space in front of me. A middle-aged man gets out and asks me:

“Hey, how long is this one?”

“Oh, It’s only a 1/2 mile loop around the pond.”

“Ohhh…. we don’t have time for that.”

He jumps into his car and speeds off.

.

Sometimes, people in the national parks bug me. Maybe I’m a total hiker snob, but the park is 100 times better when you exit your car.  You don’t get some “high-score” for working your tush off. Lose your concept of time. Turn off your phone. Go on a hike and lose yourself. You might find yourself in the process.

/end rant.    Time for pretty pictures instead:
