“She’s got the urge for going, So I guess she’ll have to go…” – Joni Mitchell
I heard this beautiful melody on the radio recently, and although inspired by wintertime, I found it quite relevant to my migratory nature and love of wandering. Here’s a link if you’d like to listen.
Thanks to the Adventure group I joined, I discovered a wonderful new place to get “going.” Cattail Cove State Park is located between Havasu and Parker, Arizona, and offers some nice hiking trails.
The one and half mile Whyte’s Retreat trail follows the Colorado River shoreline winding in and out of coves and ending at the BLM campsite of the same name. Gorgeous!
The more strenuous Wayne’s Way and Ted’s trail lead up and down through desert hills and shallow gorges. A section of Ted’s trail runs through a wash with bluffs on both sides and includes a few dry “waterfalls” to scale.
I’m always surprised what can grow in areas where climates and conditions are harsh. So wherever you are today, adapt, grow and bloom where you are planted.
