  • Some research somewhere says that social walking is the best thing for emotional health. So go for a dog walk each morning with my roommate. And our dogs. This picture is from a walk in Colorado, where hiking up a fourteen-er is not unlike walking through a mall, at least in that there are so many people there. South Dakota, especially around Rosebud, the walks are more desolate. I would be surprised if I saw someone while walking out on the fire trails in a hour, in a day. Gee, if I was lost out here, would anyone find me?
