I took a 'marathon' 1.5 hour walk the other day.
I've been doing it like this: No cell phone. No iPod. Just my house key & my camera.
No water even (stupid...was really wishing I had some at the end of this walk).
I head off in one direction. No plan in mind. No map. Just go...I kind of get lost and have to find my way back.
I came upon "Moon Canyon" after hiking up into the Mt. Washington neighborhood. What? I never even knew this was there!
I started to descend into the 'canyon'. My urban mind started to go wild. What if somebody is down there and attacks me? No one knows that I'm here...no cell phone...a woman alone... What If I keel over because I'm so out of shape? I'm really out of breath...man this is a bad idea...
I went down in anyway.
It was more of a very tiny gully, really. Kind of pretty. Reminded me a bit of the landscape of CA's central coast.
And nothing bad happened.
