and turning a corner she emerged into a grassy clearing of boulders, gigantic
boulders that looked as if they were pushing up from the earth, covered with
lichen, lichen like a man's beard, and deeply creased, like human faces
compressed and distorted, and the wind in the topmost branches of trees was
visible here, the effort, the seeming emotion, the trail divided into a broad, not
very clearly defined V, the left branch curving back to the lake in the deep
shadow of evergreens and the ...

The ponies, startled by the fall of their riders, ran hither and thither over the plain,
snorting and neighing with fright, but the Maudans, who were swift runners,
speedily secured them, and brought them to the spot where the woman sat and
two of her party had staggered to their feet wounded and bleeding. But small
chance had these white men for their lives, or mercy at the hands of the fierce
savages —most cruel and blood-thirsty of any red skins who roved those far
western plains.

If bicyclists or runners also use your trail, they may trigger a dog's chase instinct. If
your dog is a chaser, tell her to "Sit" when runners or bicyclists approach from
either direction and reward her for looking away. The Right Gear Pet supply and
camping stores stock a range of hiking accessories for dogs. You may want to
equip your dog with some special items. Try using a flat nylon collar (with a quick-
release catch in case it gets snagged on something) and a nylon or cloth leash.

Her companion called for help and rescuers littered her out. Comment: The trail is
easy, but it is a trail and not a road, and being near waterfalls, it may well have
been wet. On August 19, 2008, Rebecca H., 14, was training with other cross-
country runners along the Lonesome Lake Trail. She sprained her ankle.
Rescuers splinted her ankle and carried her out. Comment: This is the first
accident involving a trail runner that I have had to write about. Moving fast with

One last point deals with footwear — a subject well covered in other literature.
Heavy lug soled boots should be avoided for trail walking as they needlessly
chew up the trail and provide little if any added traction. Simple moccasins or
plain canvas runners are just as practical and far less damaging. They also dry
faster when wet. (For information on making your own shoes, boots and
moccasins see the Bibliography: HOMEMADE GEAR - SHOES). THE SKILLS

I spent the entire day, visited four lakes, covered about 18 miles of trail and still I
didn 't see a single soul! Saturday-first weekend in July- and not a person did I
see! Saturday, August 4-the hardest trip I have ever tried to make in the Alps was

got the impression that it is not often visited by anyone. I sure love to run in
Canyon Creek. Took several dips in the creek on the way back. Friday, August 10
