My version

(Congratulate me if I successfully make this post–it’ll be my first foray into the blogosphere….)


On Sunday, 7/29 I drove Dylan to the trailhead he wanted to start out at around 9am. No, you don’t get a link to a map, a gps coordinate, or even specific information about what trailhead it was. It was by a private reservoir, on the East side of the Rocky Mountain National Park, somewhere south of the infamous Camp Dick, and I could find it again if pressed. Is that enough information? He planned to walk 16 miles west, and end up at Monarch Lake to join his group of Backpacker companions. I kissed him goodbye after confirming a date to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary with a meeting of the hearts and minds in transcendental space and time. Then I drove straight home in the company of selfish twinges of jealousy and flashbacks of the long stretches of loneliness while he was hiking the CDT and I wasn’t on our honeymoon. (Poor me.) Ah well the bird must fly! Happy trails, Baby!

  1. Hey Ann, congrats on your first post! Here’s hoping for many more….

    And congrats also on your anniversary, which I think is today, right? August 2nd? Is it your fourth?

    I can commiserate with being left behind. Although I don’t hesitate to do the leaving for a fun time myself, I do hate being left.

    So will we soon see pictures inside Home #4???

  2. Oh, really? Well, Happy Anniversary! That’s too bad that Dylan is gone, but if I know him, I think he’s probably missing you right now even more than you’re missing him. 🙂

    I really like the photo in this post. You’re faces are so expressive. It tells a whole story right there.

    Keep up the writing! I’m enjoying it!!

  3. Happy anniversary, blogging, and trails to mrs. cyberhobo! I would like to see more of her on the blog too, since clearly everyone loves her, especially me.

  4. Thanks to all of you for your supportive comments! I might just be brave enough to (gasp) make another post sometime. I’m also getting my very own FlickR account organized, so I can start sharing my photos with all of you–and I’ll include some of the inside of Home #4, promise!
