am I walking
the right way
I was exploring a new-to-me section of the nearby Rothrock State Forest yesterday — a trail that hadn’t been maintained for years on a mountain that looked as if it got very few visitors in the course of a year. I only lost the trail briefly a couple of times, but walking back to the car along state forest roads, there was a point at which I became confused and wondered whether I’d taken a wrong turn. That’s when I noticed how lonely the crickets sounded.
