Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

PCT thru-hikers at the McDonalds Restaurant yesterday.

Patch and Crumbs.

Traveling the 15 freeway on the way to an Area Assembly, I needed to stop for gas. I pulled off at the exit where all the thru-hikers stop to eat at the McDonald’s before they continue on up to their next trail town, Wrightwood. I asked Melissa if she’d mind if I drive through the McDonald’s parking lot as I would like to see if there are any hikers there.

As I pulled into the parking lot Patch and Crumbs were 20 feet away from getting their first hot meal in a number of days. Kindly, they allowed me to photograph them. I introduced myself, after asking if they were thru-hiking, by saying, “Hi, I’m Gottago.” Crumbs responded, “Oh, you are the bandana lady.” Yup, I am.

They are so young. So strong. So unbelievably cute.

And……. I am very envious of the above as well as the fact that they are out there “doing the trail”. Heavy sigh.
