Hiking Along An Old Road
Hiking along an old road while the clouds are breaking upon us makes us quite happy. Everything is beautiful in our sight. We think about the visitors who travelled this old road in stagecoaches and automobiles of earlier times. They had to stay sober and alert to negotiate this adventurous road.
This historic road can be seen uphill from the present Big Old Flat Road which was completed in 1940. This old road was completed in 1874, and could be driven until 1945, when two large rockslides closed the steep switchback section portion to all but hikers.
The shadows and darkness over the distant hills no longer reach us. We are happy with the plans we have made for this day. As the light begins to break forth, we feel the noon-day sun upon us. The mountains are now girded with joy. The beauty of the mountains is everywhere. Our eyes are watchful, our ears are listening.
We are happy to be walking along this side of the mountain. We pass by a large rocky hillside and are thankful that the remainder of the mountain is standing firm.
