Four gentleman/scholarly types met at the pump house lot to once again attempt at becoming one with nature while trying to remain upright.
We did Buttermilk+Quarry Loop to T-Pot to North Bank to get right around that 7 mile number.
The sunset turned the 4 of us into wide-eyed children for the duration of the Nickle Bridge. Fabulous..
YHC had not hit the trails in the Fall season.. the leaves do an excellent job of concealing roots and loose rocks.. Shakedown went down and YHC and Helix had near misses. Still a solid pace.
Just a great morning. Thankful for the opportunity as always.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms…”
-Henry David Thoreau
