Mid Hills Run

Today Ann and I split up – for a few hours. She does the 9 mile trail hike from the Hole in the Wall campground to Mid Hills, while I move the camper and run back to join her. This campground is high and airy, and I find a site with fantastic views.

We meet as planned on the somewhat hard-to-follow trail between campgrounds. I notice this odd skewered lizard carcass in a bush. I read at the visitor center that Loggerhead shrikes kill lizards this way, and sometimes kill more than they can eat to show off to potential mates.

Then I run back to the campground. Running definitely doesn’t inspire photography, but it provides a different kind of fatigue that makes the final collapse at camp delectable.
