When I started this walkabout, on April 1, it was springtime, one of the four best seasons here in Northern California, weather was no object. I could leave home at any time, shed coats and hats, carry water or not. As this adventure winds down, the heat is on.
Which means I have to think and plan my hikes. This means water, sunblock, large hats, careful attention to start times, and which trails and roads to take or avoid, depending on sun exposure. It would seem that I have to pretty much "Go Back and take care" of myself. So, yet again, this little walk is taking me all the places that I need to visit.
