Mostly two track and gravel road walking
End of day entered the mountains.  Made me happy and thankful to be here again

Met lady and husband. He was very talkative and friendly

Met rancher at cox canyon with presumably his grandkids. Soft weathered features,   weathered hands. Going to find their horses so they could move some cattle.  So friendly.  Soft spoken, kindly, down to earth. Both kids like their grandfather had big smiles on their faces.  Reminded me of my father, had he remained in ranching.

Good day.  Felt good after the past two difficult ones.

It's past hiker midnight  (9pm) and I must sleep.
