Zero day at Ghost Ranch
After some contemplation last night and this morning I decided to stay yet another day at Ghost Ranch and plan to hike out with Huck tomorrow morning. In order to make sure I link my footsteps, Henry was nice enough to give me a ride up to where I hitched a ride to Ghost Ranch so that I might walk back. That way when I leave tomorrow I can walk right out from the ranch.
After getting back from my morning walk, I lounged around for a while, read some magazine articles, and then met Huck and a couple of the staff members (Will and Cale) at the dining hall. Will was planning on going to the archery range in the afternoon and invited Huck and me to come along. The answer was an emphatic yes. It was awesome. Not only were there targets to shoot at, there were also two 4' tall piñatas. One was a one-eyed red monster and the other was Darth Vader. Oh man was it fun to shoot an arrow right through Darth's head.
After dinner (ribs!) We headed back to Will and Cale's place to hang out and drink some beer. Not a bad way to end the day. Tomorrow it really is back to the trail, after french toast of course.
