Seminole Canyon. If you look at the left side horizon you can see the visitor center
since it was such a nice day I went for a walk on one of the hiking trails here at Seminole Canyon State Park this morning. There wasn't a lot to see until I got to the edge of the canyon. Just mostly flat brushy country with lots of plants that have stickers on them. It's not the kind of country that you can take off walking wherever you want to go, you pretty much have to stay on the trails inless you want to go home looking like you've lost a fight with a herd of porcupines.
One of the many unfriendly plants you run into at Seminole Canyon State Park the spikes are about 2 inches long
It makes me wonder how the Indians back in the day dealt with country like this. In the Visitor center Museum the pictures of the ancient Indians always show them wearing a loincloth so they must've had some mighty tough legs to be able walk through this brush while hunting. Or maybe we modern folks just can't deal with 2 inch long needles driven into our legs as we walk along like they could. I suppose hunger overpowers other lesser irritations.
I had a talk with the Indian God up at the visitor center the other day, and told him about all the problems I've been having with the Internet around here and if I could just get enough Internet to post on my blog every day I would be very happy. Now I didn't think he could do anything about that, after all he's about 10,000 years old and didn't have to deal with low bandwidth Internet like I'm having to do. After all they were still using dial-up back then. But for some strange reason ever since I talked to him about it I've been able to post on my blog everyday, now I can't do much else, but I have been able to get my blog on the Internet every day so far.
Now I don't for one minute think a bronze statue of a 10,000 year old Indian God can fix the Internet, only a crazy person would think that. But maybe tomorrow I'll speak to him about the lack of a Verizon signal around here, just in case.
Now where are those trail markers ? I don't want to get lost out here.
