How are your ears doing now? I love hollering and hearing my echo. It also helps scare off any cougars or what have you, that could be lurking around. I spent my Sunday being frustrated by people that I have to deal with. So, I decided to let a mountain kick my ass for five hours. I went up the "ribbon" trail again. That's the trail that really isn't much of a trail. You follow these ribbons that are tied to tree branches or cairns along the way. Shorts are not recommended. The thick brush will cut you up fast. I want to find my old machete and clear some of it away when I go up again.
Someday soon I will get an earlier start and make for the cliff top, then hit the peak south of there. I saw an American Eagle up hunting in the cliffs. It was something else. It swooped over me and I about shit myself. I bet that creature could have scalped me and then plucked my eyes out no problem. You should have seen its wingspan. It was impressive. There is a small pole at the top of the cliff, so I want to make sure that I bring my own flag to hang when I make it. I don't think many people do make it up that far because of how undeveloped and overgrown everything is on this "trail".
Well, that was about the coolest thing that I did this weekend, other than shout out my favorite lines from the film There Will Be Blood at the local Carl Jr's. The ladies dig me. Figure out which one of the lines I like to use in certain circumstances. Go on. Try it!
