Sunday Hike Minutia

Well, I guess from the lack of comments, no one is enjoying my hike minutia but me!


Snipes spotted: 2
Hawks: 1
Lizards: 1
Runny Babbits: 1
Snakes: 0 (thank goodness)
Best moment: Watching the sun come up
Most creative moment: Using the front of my sweatshirt for a scarf when the Santa Ana winds kicked up after sunrise. I pulled the front back over my head so the collar was around my hairline and the body of the shirt protected my ears.
Things I carried: A dalmatian "paw sized" rock
Did I bring it home: Nah
Most exciting moment: Noticing a red sports car down a ravine.
Most dreaded moment: Realizing I had to hike down and see if there was a body in it. (It was empty. WHEW!)
Most frustrating moment: Explaining to the LAPD where it was.

sounds like you had an adventure! I'd have brought that rock home. Did you hang around to meet the cops at the car? I wonder what happened there, and where the driver is.

Janet, There is a 90 degree turn in the road there. There are signs everywhere and a speed limit of 15 MPH. Let's just say the road went left and the car went straight.

Saturday night... they were probably drunk.

Mabel and I have been under that curve in the creek during several wrecks. For one, four kids came around the curve too fast and made a complete U turn, jumping the curve, through a fence and down into a ravine, flattening all four tires!

Creekhiker, your hikes are a lot more exciting than mine. I've never seen a car in a ravine. I know I wouldn't relish the idea of crawling down to see if anyone was inside, hurt or dead.

You're a heroine and it was a blessing that you didn't have to rescue anyone.

Were you hiking before dawn? Oh, you must be a really early bird.

I'm back to tell you about the new header on my blog. That's the Clinton Presidential Library, the newest star in Little Rock's crown.

Those moments when you were climbing down to check on the car in the ravine must have been scary ones. I think you're very brave.

BTW, I can't see this photo for some reason. Any ideas?

I'm beginning to seem like a bad penny, I just keep showing up. You asked about Boulevard Bread Company. It's the most wonderful bread, etc bakery in Little Rock, started by a young man who trained with Alice Waters in California as well as in Italian bakeries. He's got the touch.

And the chai is good too.

Annie, Bad penny or not, you're always welcome! That bakery sounds wonderful. And I love the new header.

And I'm not REALLY an early bird. I just had a busy day and wanted Mabel to get her hike in. I'm more of a really good doggie mom than an early bird.

Velvet, I was trying to host the pic on my cel phone site and it kept disappearing so I moved it over to blogger.

I don't know about brave. I'm more a cross between a busy body and a damn fool! LOL.

Thanks for fixing the photo, Holly.
