I hike for work and I hike for play. Right now I'm feeling a little antsy because the snow level is 5000 feet and I live at 4400, so there aren't a lot of trails open. I've been hiking cross country behind my house every day this week, on a faint two-track that loops around the foothills for about 3 miles. I was grinning about it today because I realized that on my unmarked, unmapped, "boring" hike, I have probably seen more wildlife this week (porcupine, antelope, white-tail deer, mule deer, elk, golden eagle, sharp-shinned hawk, Canada geese, and mallards) than I ever do on any of the popular trails!
