On advice of my friend drip aka Rusty aka Peter we hiked Great Wass Island Preserve yesterday. Five mile circuit, three distinct sections. First section through peatland and jack pines (fabulous, absolutely, two miles unlike anything I've hiked, I want to see in peak October), second bushwhacking two miles of cobblestone, sand, seaweed, boulders and cliffs (seashore, snore, Earthgirl's favorite section), third section Maine old forest of moss and ferns (!). Find Earthgirl in this photo from section one.
When we get where we want in Maine Maine is holyfuck, miles of nowhere exist between the holyfucks, miles. (Great Wass is 30 miles from Acadia by crow, 120 by car.)
We own the house we live in, plan to die in that house, though lately the inevitability of that game plan strikes us as not necessarily writ. I mention this solely because miles eat fun.
Also too: wore wrong shoes for rock-scrambling.
