Day 16 (7/7/09)
It was another beautiful day on the trail. Sadly, there is a lot of activity going on. Union Pacific is tearing up old ties and replacing them. I am hoping they leave me building materials but I have my doubts. I also noticed that somebody had striped the wires off the power lines on the southern end of the trail. I am sure that at least some of my building will become victims of the construction. I know I had vowed to quit rebuilding but I decided that I would make exceptions for some my favorites. As a result, I spent most of the day rebuilding. I also need to start going south but it seems like there is so much to do in the north that I never get a chance, maybe tomorrow. Right now it is hard to find rocks. The plants are so tall and thick. There are some blue flowers blooming and if I am right I think they are chicory. It is hard to photograph flowers along the trail. There are so many of them and you always wonder if you got the best bunch.


  1. I'd love to get together. What time do you usually go out? I get done with summer school at 12:30. Or we might be around this weekend, but I am not sure because we might do some camping/hiking. Let me know if you're going out tomorrow (friday) afternoon.
