The trail is starting to get overgrown. Where’s a horse when you need one, eh? Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

All through these (and the following) overgrown sections of trail, I talk to the snakes, “Hello snaky, snaky, snakes, just passing through, don’t mind me.” at the same time, I’m probing the trail ahead with my hiking poles to make sure any somnolent snakes wake up before I tread on them. As for the ticks, I talk to them too. But I’m much less polite, “Ticky, ticky, tickies … eff orf.”

I won’t be hiking this trail again until the fall, when the vegetation has died back a bit and the bugs are a lot less active.

There is a trail… and this is probably the last time I’ll hike it until the vegetation dies back in the fall. Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
