Amy, that truck belonged to Bobby Beausoleil.
Good read, Amy! Hadn't heard about the truck.
Yes, I've noticed that quite a few of the hikes they publish seem wrong for the season. I don't know why they don't publish hikes that would be more appropriate for the current weather. It seems they don't care about things like that as long as they publish "something."
Otherwise, I did enjoy your article. I've been up Ghost Mountain and even in the best weather, it still amazes me that the Souths lived there year round. I heard the temp in Borrego the other day was 115 degrees. Yikes.
Looking forward to your next article. Keep your boots dry and your whistle wet.
Great story. I can tell you were inspired by your visit to the Big Easy. Makes me want to go back. I've been to Johnny's Po' boys and enjoyed their fried oyster po'boys. Never had an egg and bacon one, though...hmmm...
"On our way back to shore, we passed buckled homes slipping into the bayou, upturned shrimp boats and crab-catchers left to rot. The swamp was fun, but it was more interesting to see the real ghosts of New Orleans among the murky reeds."
I've yet to visit NOLA, but this makes me want to take the road less traveled there, for sure.
So eerily descriptive Amy. Feels like I was there. Keep 'em coming.
