You folks may have noticed a dearth of posts for the past few weeks (aside from a few I set up in advance). The reason is that I was gone on another trip out west with my son. It’s now time for me to write about it.

We starting out in the Badlands of South Dakota.

Memory Rock

On Memorial Day I went on another of the organized hikes at Clear Creek Metro Park. As with the hike described in Winnowing Rock and Sowing Seeds, I was accompanied by fellow-barefoot Lee Parker, from Upstate New York.

Criss-Crossing Crane Creek

Yesterday was a perfect day for a hike down in Hocking Hills. It was decently cool (50°) but not uncomfortable, with a lot of leaves down so that the Blackhand sandstone and terrain could be seen, and there were still enough leaves to provide some nice color.

It was a perfect barefoot hike.
