Bartram Trail, Hiking, Southeast / 18.10.2015

After breakfast of coffee and oatmeal with walnuts and dried blueberries I finally got my stuff packed. The other Mark B had been packed up ready to go a long time ahead of me. We soon discovered that we had not yet reached Jone's Gap at all. We had assumed that we were camping about 0.2 miles past Jone's Gap, but in fact we had camped about 0.2 miles short of Jone's Gap.

A hummingbird was sitting on a pine tree nearby. I was motionless as I attempted to see how long it would rest if undisturbed. In a flash, it was hovering about 10 inches over my chest close to my nose. In order to extend the moment, I remained motionless. It hovered seconds as it drifted closer to my nose. I...
