7 Miles to Lunch

It was Julie’s idea to walk the electric line to T-Bows for lunch – only about a 9 to 10 mile stroll – one way.

I countered with an offer to shuttle the car about seven miles to where the electric line crossed the blacktop and walk seven miles to the car and drive the last 2 or 3 miles – and drive the 12 miles back by the road.

On the way we saw:

  • Hundreds of pieces of native American pottery
  • Huge ant hills and red-winged grass hoppers
  • Elk, rabbit, antelope and a myriad of other tracks
  • Jack rabbits and a cotton tail
  • A snake – four feet
  • Lizards
  • A dead fox
  • Cacti and dried flowers and grasses
  • Fantastic views
  • Cattle
  • Lava flows and cinder cones and red and black lava
  • Pinions and Ponderosa and Junipers
  • Butterflies and bees and spiders

And we smelled . . .

And we heard . . .

And we felt . . .

And, when we arrived, the meal was delicious.

But, the best part of the day was sharing all of these experiences with her!

Yessir! After that aware & lovely walk, I bet that T-Bows food was especially fine!
