We were heading all the way to the ridge up ahead for a view during lunch. As you can see, the trail sort of petered out. I was being very careful at my age since it is easy to twist an ankle.
One way of being sure you do not fall is re-tying your shoes!
We still had a long way to go and as you can see lots of rocks are hidden beneath the shrubs. There is no trail in actuality.
Yet, many have gone before us and had far more energy as they created markers to remind us we were not breaking new ground.
Then just up ahead we saw the wind farm which I think is a token non-fossil activity to warrant the HUGE power plant that you can see on the horizon on the left.
Finally we found the perfect lunch spot. Someone had even put up a windbreak, although our day was not so windy.
Now you can sit on the hard rocks and I will pass you the ham and cheese sandwich that the hotel made for us. Catch your breath because hubby wants to go back to the car via the woods to the West!
