Flying is miserable enough without adding coronavirus masks, and subtracting airport bars. So, I decided to drive 2,200 miles from Phoenix to Hagerstown, MD, for Halloween.

I was going to leave on Monday, but then I saw a forecast for an ice storm in the southern plains, and I wanted to get ahead of it, so I threw a bag together and headed out the door. I made 700 miles to Amarillo the first day. On 4½ hours sleep, and despite three hours of driving in that ice storm across the Panhandle, followed by 10 hours of heavy rain, I made 940 miles the second day to Terre Haute, IN. Even though I-70 is one long construction zone across Indiana, the third day was a relative breeze. But it was a lot of driving. 🌨

After Halloween, and another hike along the C&O Canal, I took four relatively leisurely days to drive back to Phoenix. I spent the second night in Conway, AR, but I arrived at only 2:30 p.m., so I decided to go for a leg-stretching hike. (Read the description I just added.)

The Tucker Creek Trail rail is is clean as it winds through some nice neighborhoods. There is some garbage in Tucker Creek though.

Something I forgot from the description, is that there was a bicycle tire pump stand along the path.

The water was enough that I spotted both a heron and an egret. I’m sure there’s frogs or toads as well. 🐸

I could tell the hills of Arkansas would have been spectacular a month ago, but there was very little color left.
