Trail Finds..

Our hiking has continued and we are getting close to having hiked 175 miles since we started November 5. I pick up all kinds if things on the trail as we go along, some worth keeping, others like plastic water bottle caps head into the garbage..since most of the trails are part of the mining camps, we come across some treasures, especially after it rains..old shells, glass, rocks, feathers, china tea cup, leather bezel from a bridle, a washer...I am so please to say that the trails are always almost litter free..such a good way to hike, leaving no mark.

SO impressed that you've hiked that far in such a short time. I too, am always picking up things and stuffing them in my pockets, as I walk. Rocks are a biggie - feathers too, last summer. Thanks for cleaning up the paths - Happy Valentines Day! Tanya

I love all your wonderful finds, Dagmar! Sad to say, our walks are filled with filth the entire time. Littering is a big problem in this country and there is trash everywhere, but I try to overlook all that and just focus on what is beautiful and wonderful about nature. Came home with a rock and a leaf today. Best wishes to you, Tammy
