The Weekend Hike

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

“Not knowing what to expect, he made his way into the dark of the forest.” His doctor had told him at his last checkup that he must get some exercise. He decided this was the day to begin. It was the first day of his vacation. He walked determinedly toward the hiking trail. It was a 2 mile loop and he thought he was up to the challenge. As he hiked further and further along the trail he thought to himself, This seems longer than 2 miles and I should have brought a water bottle!  That was when he heard it. A loud snorting and the thumping of a heavy footed creature. The kids must have hidden the warning sign again, the Ranger remarked. Every year we get one of these hikers run through by the wild boars.

        Wanted to clarify that. Well you won’t get eaten, just gored. This came to mind because I was up in Pacific Grove and saw a crossing sign for wild boars. I did not know their were boar up there. And I went hiking that weekend. 😀

        I don’t know. I haven’t been there for a long time, but they have more deer than anywhere on the planet. Of course deer won’t hurt you, but you might get shot by a hunter with a bad aim.
