This strange thing showed up in the wash on my trails today. A pile of rocks. It looks like a trail marker but it can’t be. The wash isn’t a trail. It’s just a cool place with lots of good smells that I like to walk in.
And sometimes when it rains the wash turns into a stream. It washes away all the cool smells and brings in new ones. But that’s why this new thing can’t be a trail marker.
Can you imagine a trail marker in the middle of a stream? Maybe if there were stepping stones and it marked the best path, but all there is in that spot are small rocks and sand .
What kind of person would put that trail marker there?
Maybe they were lost and figured if they ended up going in circles they would know it. You think they’d figure it out by the smells though.
Or maybe they put it there as a target for birds. The birds could fly right over and aim at it. As long as they’re not aiming at my head that’s okay. I guess they shouldn’t aim at my person’s head either.
Oh, wait a minute. I just figured it out. One of my friends left this here.
It’s a new message post. Now I don’t have to sniff all over to see which of my friends has been in the wash lately.
