That must have been some kind of joy ride.
The car, red iron crust flaking away at the edges and around the bullet holes that littered the metal frame, lay half buried in a mound of rusty earth and entangled sagebrush.
The trunk had long-since eroded away, leaving the gaping mouth of the car and its innards beyond laying slack.
Abandoned. Lost. Forgotten.
How it got almost half a mile from the road, up a narrow, slick rock canyon several miles outside of Lander, Wyoming, we had no idea.
Of course, we couldn’t resist the temptation of rusty metal injuries and tetanus…
… before moving on down the trail.
Before tackling the weekend on the Isle, I’ve managed to steel some photos from Jonmikel from our Water of Leith walk. We managed to get out last weekend and walk the 6 miles we had left to go. We started at the Visitor’s Centre, explored the myriad of small displays mostly geared toward children, playied with a mini-watermill display, then headed out to enjoy the perfect weather. The river goes from the Firth of Forth all the way to the Pentlands, where it actually starts, so we headed out away from the city and ended the day in the Pentlands. It was warm, so we shared the road with walkers, joggers, swimmers, bicyclists and even an odd horseback rider. It made me extremely jealous, as I really miss horseback riding, especially on beautiful days.
Here are some shots I took while on the walk:
