So where am I? Where is the trail?
The sign said go left but there is only a canyon that way. Am I supposed to jump or fly across it? Is there a bridge I’m missing? Do I need special eyewear to see it?
This was a beautiful hike through near-virgin lands and had me thinking about Neil Young’s song “Natural Beauty”:
What a lucky man
To see the earth before it touched his hand
What an angry fool
Sure, I felt like that lucky man. But dude, where’s my trail? Can you spot it?
Turns out I was standing on it and looking straight at it. Let me back up a bit first.
