Ripplingly comfortable day out in the Hill Country outside Austin. Walked up the red granite dome with my buddy Louis guiding 7 of us to the top. The view was different, elevating and energizing us within the clear light of a bright Texas day. Vernal pools lined with cactus and mosses. Later we entered a long boulder cave that was challenging enough for me to feel grateful that I was careful and still nimble enough to squirm and squeeze my way down and reach the lower end. On the way back we ate at the world famous Cooper’s Pit Barbeque where I gratefully shelled out $13 for a good sized assortment of meats, baked beans, potato salad, white bread, and extra sauce.
I passed on the sunblock, and relished the vitamin D replenishing power of the Texas sunlight today.
In the Path of Young Bulls details a team’s five-month-long stint of daily challenges along the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, one of the USA’s toughest long-distance journeys. The book also serves as a resource for section and long-distance hikers in planning their own CDT adventures, by including daily mileages from starting and ending locations, as well as on-trail reports and conditions for each day’s hike.
