Exploration Guides

We're all explorers. You just need the right guide.

There’s always a surprise around the corner.

Yesterday, I thought we were done mapping Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area.  We turned down the last trail segment, which I were pretty sure I knew exactly where it went, and I was right, too, except for the small trail that forked off it.  Then the small trail that forked off that one.  Then the big trail that ran into, with the small trails off that, then we stopped, having hiked 17 miles in that part Friday and Saturday.

Of course, none of this trail is on any maps, anywhere, but there’s some nice, hilly terrain and wetlands in it, as well as an old gravel pit, an who knows what else is still hidden down the trails we haven’t hiked yet.

Never be afraid to turn down an unknown trail.  You never know what you might find.
