Lets go one a hike today, my brother said one morning as we were having coffee contemplating our day.
Okay I says, where shall we hike to ?
Lets take a short hike towards House mountain.
Okay, lets do this.
We started out around 10 in the morning wearing only sandals on our feet, and of course clothes to cover our bodies....
about an hour into the hike, we decided to go 'cross country' forgoing any trails and doin it the old school way of negotiating the terrain as it has been for eons, over and through cacti of all ilk, up, over, and around rocks and scaling small cliffs as if we were mountain goats on 2 legs.
We got as far up the mountain as we humanly could, and realized after setting on some rocks high above the desert's floor that we had by then, been hiking for 4 hours, and decided in order to return home on foot, alive, that we should abandon our quest to make the top of the mountain, and try to make it back to our house, which by this time was but a spec on the vast landscape that was the Arizona desert.
We also found that, going up is difficult without a trail, and even more difficult to traverse down back through all of the cacti and rocks that we had negotiated on our way up..
I had finished pulling 27 &1/2 cacti spines of pin size out of my knee, so I was game, plus I was hungry and thirsty having drank all but 1/4 of my water.
By the time we made it home some 7 hours after we set out on a 'short' hike. I was a little tired and wanted to remove my sandals and rest the pontoons as it was approaching 5 in the evening. There are cats that hike bare footed through the terrain we traveled and love it, cursing shoes that are bad for the feet and bemoaning the fact that modern humans are soft and care not for the old ways. Well, I for one, like a good pair of hiking boots, it keeps all sorts of cacti spines and rocks not to mention other things away from the feet which were not that bad off considering the 7 hours I had spent on them. This image shows my pasty white left foot resting on the now cool pavement.
