ADVICE: when going on an adventure, wear the right shoes


So Tuesday, after I made a special trip to town to pick up the magazine article that appeared that day in Josephine, I decided I needed a little photo adventure. Funny, I did the same thing back in April when my feature was on the front page for Earth Day. I just needed to be out, and I had my camera so I went.

The thing is, I kinda suck at spontaneous adventure and had the wrong shoes (furry clogs) so most of my adventure was roadside.... with muddy shoes.

Not cool.


So it's final, I'll never make it to the top of Everest. heck, I'll never make it to the top of a really big hill if I keep wearing those shoes.

After some searching for *something*, I finally decided I'd just pop it in 4WD and hit the same place I did back in April, after all, it would be interesting to see what it looks like vs the spring.


And this is where I almost got a shoe stuck. It's also the same shoe that I tracked mud through the house.

Like I said, I'm not very good at this thing.


But it was just as pretty as before. The top of a huge hill, looking out into almost forever. That's when I decided that I would try one of my favorite techniques - before and after. Some comparison photos from then and now.




This would have been way more impressive, had I worn the right shoes.

Tomorrow, I'll share with you something I left for some random farmer to find.

********In other News*********

Anyway, I mean to share this with you yesterday evening, but for some reason, that Sonic Blast I shared with Gene put me in a sugar coma. *no really* and I went to bed at 7:30 p.m. and didn't get up til 8 a.m.

Yes I do feel refreshed, why do you ask.

I should, and I'm a little disappointed I didn't wake up looking a couple years younger considering how long I slept. But, it's just sleep, not a miracle, so I won't push it. Tonight - I'm going to try to stay awake until 7:45. I'll report later to see if that happens or not.
