A Blog about the walking activities of Mick & Gayle, from short strolls to Big Walks, interspersed with other random thoughts about things outdoor related.
The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began; Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can; Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way; Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say. [JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Day 4 - 9.5 miles in
Pausing in the shade, on the edge of the flatness of the Mojave desert for third-breakfast.
Wiggling around and up and down so much today that we must we walking 3 miles to cover a single linear mile!
(Crap photo, but I can't doing with moving out of the shade for a better one!)
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door [...] You step into the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. [Bilbo to Frodo, JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]
