In today’s world I need not spend hours planning out a trip, laboring over the minor details. My Trover app shows me photos others have taken from wherever I may be, helping me easily plan out an impromptu exploration.
Which was how I discovered the Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills.
Of course, a picture only takes you so far. Beyond that, I rely on luck and intuition. Once in the Alabama Hills, I had no cell service, and their aren’t any big signs pointing you in the right direction to the trail head.
Nature’s spirits guide me as I stumble upon the trail.
The crisp winter air invigorates me as I start the solo walk on the wild side of the eastern Sierra mountain wilderness.
