My eyes are down, not gazing into the trees, the setting horizon, or watching the birds gliding through the cloudless sky. Not looking for cues to the wandering trail… this is of course, until I am lost. Looking out for trail markers is not always the easiest task, especially if you are imagining yourself running through the woods like a swift and graceful gazelle. Just me?
