Notes from the trail: today finds us in an unexpected part of the planet, where the pines grow majestic, where the sky envelopes you in a blanket of blue, where the sweet smell of pinon dances on the crisp breeze, chilling us as we sit…as I write, I have reached the end of the line for a generation no longer with us, a ghost town, high on the pass, with memories floating around the settlement, the houses, in disrepair, wood rotting, a woodpecker, making a home in an old post, what lives ended here? What lives began? Was anything gained? Or lost?…I can almost see the pioneers going about thier daily chores, collecting water from the spring, panning for gold…this place, high in this mountain, is somehow reassuring, comfortable…I almost dont want to leave…

The adorable and unlikely friendship between a fox and a dog that’s being turned into a children’s fairytale book

Photographer Torgeir Berge

So you mean the fox and the hounds?

This makes me happy.

   Notes from the trail: with the winds at gail force and the trees shivering in their naked state, I ride…but there is no ease in todays jaunt, the hurricane, she envelopes me and won’t let go, she is a fierce one today, every revolution is a struggle, every downslope is only a tease …and so I tussle relentlessly, only knowing that on this day, I will lose. I am, caught in the proverbial stone, stuck, cold and tired, but with the will of iron, I will break out of here, only to fight another day, ride the next ride, climb the next cliff with my steed over my shoulder, sweating and short of breath…and as I seem to be the only living thing in this forest on this day, I believe I will stop, and just listen to the breeze…

Notes from the trail: with my nature deficit disorder in full swing, I awoke to glorious sunlight, warming my soul before I even crawled out of my slumber. The trails called and I bowed to her, promising my soul for this one perfect day, and so, now I hit the trail with my pack and my steed, the sun is high, the breeze sings through the naked branches, the coveys of foul scatter to my sound, the wet earth invades my senses, and I ride, all powerful,  brave, yet somehow frieghtened through  the dark patches, as if maybe the monsters are still about, waiting, plotting… no matter, my legs are strong today, my lungs, stronger..
Today, I am invincible…Even through this dark, its easy to smile, the light is here, now…
