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]

On Walker Pass
Trying to hitch a ride to town. At a rate of two cars per half hour, we could be here a while (or headed back half a mile to the campground for the night, to try again tomorrow).
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]
