I got in a little over 2 hours of walking time today, and it feels good to be back at it. Hard to believe that it has been 5 days now since my big walk down to the Colorado River and back but it has. I still feel just a little amount of soreness but not much now, and walking is beginning to feel good again. The big surprise is that my knees are not screaming at me, a very good thing! Today I found a road back behind the area where I am staying, that is very long and it easily give me my hour + in one direction for my walk today, so I will definitely be making more use of that road. Maybe I will get a little farther next walk.
While walking this morning on the above mention road, I passed a little thing called a Waterment (not so sure on the spelling here). I read the sign and it said that it was for the Big Horn sheep and other wildlife in the area. It was just a bit of roof with water tanks underneath and a pool outside that delivered the water. Maybe I will take the camera back one day and see if I can hide out …………… maybe I would get lucky and something would show up. The sign made a note of letting you know not to hide out on a high point around the Waterment because the animals would sense you as a predator and stay away from the water, so finding a spot that is more friendlier to the animals and good to hide in too, may be hard.
After getting back from my walk today, there where five or 6 local folks in the area that where out playing with their guns and shooting up lots of bullets, probably very expensive ones because they had some big guns. They paid attention to what they where doing and where very safe. I didn’t mind them none, but I was thinking that some RVers would be having a fit if they where here. Some folks don’t like guns much now-a-days. Nope, I have a nice blog here and I am not getting into how I feel about guns, LOL.
Here are a couple of shots of the BLM area I am in, just old rough desert, but for now it is kind of peaceful. Click for larger images.
