My life in words and pictures
Well, mainly pictures.
Welcome to Breakfast in America
My photo journal is an eclectic mix of things; there’s no guiding theme or topic. It is whatever happens to catch my attention, what I’ve been thinking, doing, and whatever my current obsessions are. At the moment, they are clearing some of the backlog on my ‘honey-do’ list, backpacking, hammock camping, and, I’m always, taking pictures.
Now to get back to Springfield and pick up a rental car and drive to Kansas City this afternoon.
Three nights, and 18-ish miles. That’ll do.
It was dark when I hiked in on Friday so I took my customary photograph of the cairn at the junction of the Pilot and Pole Hollow trails on the way out.
The spring turkey hunting season opened this morning which explains my snazzy hat. Not that anyone should be taking a potshot while I’m hiking on the trail, but I am camped well away from the trail. Beyond the 200 yards distance you are supposed to be before discharging a firearm.
I’m standing where I hang my hammock, which gives some idea of the lie of the land here. One day I’ll remember to look at the lens and not the phone’s screen. Le sigh.
