We decided to hike Piedra Blanca on President's Day and when we stopped to get our permit, these little blue birdies were there and we figured that was a sign of a good day to come.
He said on the way home that he didn't know how to ask for help when he was at the trail head. I find this to be a sad commentary about today's society. Luckily, he found the super nice Fridays to help him but I have to wonder what would have happened if he'd been stuck there. It's funny because before we had Casey, Husband and I hiked another trail close to this one and stumbled upon a couple with a dog. They looked disoriented and it was a hot day and they were walking on the road as we were driving home. We pulled over and offered them a ride back to their campground because they had gotten lost. I'm sure glad we look trustworthy enough for people to keep hopping in our car after our hikes but I also have to wonder about the people who maybe aren't experienced enough to tackle such big adventures. Be safe out there, readers.
