The Hobbit

10:12 am - Like the book, there was no fellowship assembled for this journey, so I tackled it alone.

Today I decided to take the trek up to Lonely Mountain - all alone.

I've been here before and thought I remembered that a certain trail dead-ended, but I took it anyway. It still dead-ends. :-)

I backtracked and took the next logical trail. I followed that one too long and found myself heading away from the cache. Not wanting to go back again, I took a series of fire breaks and deer trails up to the summit. It rained pretty well yesterday and the trail was muddy, collecting on the bottom of my shoes to make the very heavy. Maybe that's what it feels like to have Hobbit feet.

The cache was not difficult to find and all was well. Hooray! Thanks for yet another finely crafted cache. Posted by jeff at October 24, 2004 10:12 AM
