And we still had about a mile left to go when this picture was taken.
So, it was perfect for Halloween and more than a bit spooky...I was expecting a deer or skunk to pop out at any time!
But, we had protection! Let me introduce our canine bodyguards.......
Oh, and we also have another pet that likes to go on our walks....can you guess what it might be???
Tonight was a particularly good night...it was the perfect temperature and.....
And smiley faces!!
It was a good night to get dirty!
Or was it?
And, for piggy back rides!
It was a great night!
We had two more donations today so the thermometer is continuing to rise! Thank you so much!!!
We are excited to report that our daughter that is in the army has decided to walk on our behalf in Virginia and has already completed 30 miles over the last week!!!
We also heard from one of the followers of the blog that has gone one mile (with a promise of more!)
*And*, a family of 10 is going to be joining our Walk Across the World!
And, we put in another 20 miles as a collective group this evening!
So, we are now right on over that California border and well into Nevada....this is so exciting!
Here is where we are now....
We are just outside of Shurz, Nevada. And, the most exciting part is that we are finally in a location that lists a population. There are approx 720 people that live in Shurz Nevada and over 80% are Native American.
They have a yearly Pinenut festival and even more importantly.....
They have a shoe tree!!! I am not sure if it is intended that you go to add shoes to the tree or if you go to take them, as the person who posted this picture found (and took) some Dorothy red ruby shoes and cowboy boots. Maybe it is a shoe recycling tree?!? Makes me want to actually go and see it!
Thanks everyone....til tomorrow......
