Sadly, loooots of these all over the desert West – a good number being highly toxic and/or radioactive.

Jaeda will protect me, right?

overnighter

Got a nice recharge yesterday. Loaded up the backpack and went off to get lost.

Headed up to Tumalo Falls/Bridge Creek trailhead  and hiked from 5pm until the light faded…well, actually until I was scrambling over 6 foot snow drifts. Found a nice level space maybe a quarter mile from the trail. Basically just elaxed for most of the evening, getting caught up on podcasts and some ruthless (and much neglected) editing to Appalachia
