nullOver the sweltering weekend, I suited up, packed plenty of water, and drove out to the Devil’s Canyon Trailhead for some creekside hiking and cool-pool soaking.

Unfortunately, when I got to the trailhead, I noticed my camera felt a lot lighter than it usually does. The reason? I left the battery in the charger at home.

After yelling at myself and thinking about getting back in the car, I instead made the right decision and went ahead with the hike anyway, making it a “non-working hike.”

The good news? I had a wonderful, relaxing hike in a beautiful area I hadn’t seen yet. The bad? No write-up for the site. Oh well. There’s always next week.

Or, I could spend a few minutes later this week and make some Crow-style trail illustrations …
