Saturday Comic

Last week we saw “Barefoot Barlow” make an appearance in Barney Google and Snuffy Smith. Here’s another strip in which he shows up, from May 4, 1971.

That looks like a horrid place to try to walk even if shod (and those spikes would go right through a shoe sole). If you can’t go barefoot, that’s a hint that the area needs to be taken better care of.

For today let’s go with the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith published on April 30, 1974. For being hillbillies, most of the characters don’t go barefoot very often. But Barefoot Barlow does.

The Real McLean

We’ve now progressed in my trip Out West to the second hike on my last day, August 31, 2016. I’d camped at Hovenweep and planned on trying to visit a site at the Canyons of the Ancients.

Painted Back

On my trip Out West, August 28, 2016 was the day I started exploring the Canyons of the Ancients. As a reminder, this is a very large, fairly new, National Monument managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

This was the day I was going to learn if my bushwhacking skills from Ohio transferred to the desert Southwest.
