So, we decided, on a day that had bad weather, that we would hike the Salmon Pool’s Trail.
It was exciting. The river was having a blast as it roared and tumbled towards the salt water. Misty cloaks covered much of the highlands and because most people don’t follow my wise friend’s saying about bad weather and poor clothing, well, not a creature stirred on the trail, not even a mouse.
It rained the whole hike. However, we planned to get to the little cabin.
You can see this cabin on my Facebook photo. I intended to light a few candles, eat lunch, drink tea and be merry. After-all, it was close to Christmas.
When we got to the cabin, we discovered that we couldn’t get in. We thought the door might be stuck. I tried some kicks and punches, but it wouldn’t move.
I did go into the little washroom to see if there might be a key hiding inside. After all, it is my cabin, in my mind, and also on my Facebook page. Other than an awful stench, I found no key.
My hiking buddy, discovered that the cabin’s eaves hang out pretty far. She was already standing under them and eating her lunch.
was startled by a shout of surprise and maybe a little fear or anxiety. My poor buddy was falling backwards off of my heart-felt desire to produce an operating lunch bench. She managed to stop herself from going ass-over kettle, but spent the rest of the lunch time standing. She had no trust in my handiwork. She is wise.
However, as I was sitting there, I made a discovery. My brand-new rain pants were torn. There was a long tear in the leg. Brand new pants. Brand new, bright yellow, crappy rain pants.
