Gold Head was a beautiful spot, but one where I would spend more time walking and pondering the story so far than documenting my surroundings. These three pictures were the only ones I took.
On average I've been hiking about fives miles per state park per day. This is new to me. In my previous life I would spend eight to ten hours a day hunched over my desk, the only exercise being a run to the grocery or to pick up cigs and beer. This day however, I walked at least fifteen miles through flooded fields, forest canopies, and swamp. Four miles of that hike I did barefoot up ridge trail. It always really bothered me that my feet were soft and not armored up enough with callouses to enjoy not wearing shoes. I will do more of this. Toughen up, fucker, this party is just getting started.
