Is That The Edge?

Blog Post created by OldBones-Larry on Feb 9, 2014

It is now 110 days into this journey and I think I am seeing the edge of the desert. It has been cooler the last couple of days. The mountain grows larger day by day.

I have been seeing more grasses the last few days. I'm still leaving piles of grass next to the trail for my little friend. I looked for the last date loaf this morning and couldn't find it anywhere. I'm wondering if that little deer might have found it and carried it away.

I looked back this morning and couldn't even see the back of the caravan. Izzy is taking good care of the next section behind me. There is a small oasis on the horizon. I will stop long enough to fill the waterskins and then continue on. There doesn't look to be a lot of grasses there, so I will not collect any to take with me.

I have collected several rabbit-like creatures today and will make a stew for tonight. There are quite a few good edible roots around here.

Looking up at that mountain, I can see that goat moving around. He moves with such grace over those rocks. Can a person follow him up that mountainside? I have been told you can.

It looks like a pretty rough section of trail up ahead. I will put my journal away so I can concentrate on the trail.

One step, and then another, gets you where you are going.

Hugs and love.
