Drove across California, back to my Cabin Home. Got home in time for a late supper, and after greeting and eating--I quickly got in my walk.
Dark. A new moon. I took my flashlight and my white dog. The flashlight is the hand pump/no battery kind. More reliable than those that run on batteries.
Peaceful. Spooky. Walking on these country roads, on a night when there is no moon to guide you, is both exhilarating and scary. The stars were out in full force. Nice to see them. But I also kept thinking about that Mountain Lion track I saw the other day.
