Mile Marker ZeroI love when a trail has mile markers. I seem to lack the innate ability to know how far I’ve walked (or, frankly, how far I should walk). I’m sure it’s because I’m distracted by the scenery or even my own thoughts, so I appreciate when the trail keeps track for me.
I walked the entire 20.1 mile Old Plank Road Trail at the beginning of last year. I did it haphazardly, walking a short section at a time, there and back. I snapped pictures of the mile markers with my phone to help me keep track of where I’d walked.
It seemed an appropriate time to go back to the beginning.
