Yesterday I returned to Cantwell Cliffs, partly because I wanted better pictures than the ones I took with a crummy camera in 2000 Miles.

But I also wanted to see if I could avoid getting lost for a change.

2000 Miles

Since 2006 I’ve kept track of my barefoot hikes (and this keeps track of only those hikes in which I’ve been truly barefoot). During yesterday’s hike at Cantwell Cliffs, that accounting went over 2000 miles.
