      A friend of mine sent me this as the Quote of the Day...

      "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

      ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

      Do you think Emerson might have been a geocacher?






      Of course, we don't WANT incidental trails any more than we can help...


      But then I was indoctrinated by the National Park Service -- the ol' poster of a hiking boot crushing a rare orchid.


      Still, in the right vein: A touch of Frost:


      1. The Road Not Taken



      TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, 

      And sorry I could not travel both              

      And be one traveler, long I stood            

      And looked down one as far as I could  

      To where it bent in the undergrowth;           5


      Then took the other, as just as fair,        

      And having perhaps the better claim,    

      Because it was grassy and wanted wear;              

      Though as for that the passing there      

      Had worn them really about the same,         10


      And both that morning equally lay          

      In leaves no step had trodden black.      

      Oh, I kept the first for another day!        

      Yet knowing how way leads on to way, 

      I doubted if I should ever come back.            15


      I shall be telling this with a sigh 

      Somewhere ages and ages hence:          

      Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— 

      I took the one less traveled by,

      And that has made all the difference.
