Ralph, Nathan Scott and I went off path, meandering through broken branches and poison oak. The sun was hot for February and a trickle of sweat kept finding its way back to my forehead, no matter how often I wiped it off. Suddenly we reached the side of a cliff and the sky opened up above us. We looked down upon the town of Santa Rosa, at civilization. We had been wandering for four hours and not passed a single person, that is how vast Annadel is. After we found our path again, we walked up to Lake Ilsanjo and sat by the side of the lake and had a picnic. It was spectacular.March 9, 2012 Like Add a Comment
