Gary and the Pole Hollow Cairn – Time for the obligatory selfie at the cairn. I prefer this black and white version. Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

I got here from the trailhead in record time — 17 minutes. Maybe the time spent on the treadmill in our ‘home gym’ is paying off. I wish it would pay off with a weight reduction too.

At least this time I have my hat. I left it on the backseat of the car when we went on our recent Devil’s Backbone trip. The observant might notice that my glasses are different. I left the house wearing my work (2′-3′ working distance) glasses. I didn’t notice until I got into the dark under the leaf canopy. In the dim light I wondered why everything was out of focus. I was nodding my head up and down trying to work out why my varifocals were no longer working. When I took them off to examine them I realized my error.

I won’t bore you with how difficult it is to get the darned very illusive cairn into this shot. You’ll just have to believe me. It is. It would be much easier with a phone than it is with a camera with no forward-facing selfie display.
