Another Working Journal
So I had gotten the idea that if we climbed over the top of the north face and came stealthily down the south face we might be able to see the elusive marker as we approached from above. We had heard of hikers who had done that (the irate property owner complained about them to us as she chased us away). So we set out to find the trail, bringing along our adventure journal, which we've kept for several years to record things we do together. This time we made a map in the notebook as we walked off the familiar trail to help us find our way home. You can see that we found some beautiful clay, which we rubbed on the page while collecting some of it to make into paint.
This little unbeautiful notebook is a great treasure to both Jacob and me because we look back into it to remember adventures we've had and to find out information we would have otherwise forgotten (how DID we attach the penny to the railroad track that time?)
