Miwok hike

Hiking with my trail group at Walker Creek Ranch, Sept 15, 2010. (I worked there for a week as a sub.) The kids are sixth-graders from Mount Tamalpais School in Mill Valley, CA. A beautiful partly cloudy day.

This shot was taken as part of a Coast Miwok hike. The hike also included a ceremonial smudge with white sage, a calling in of directions (invocation), a visit with "Grandmother Oak," a romp in a big pile of bay leaves, a solo hike, a story, and a time of deep reflective silence.
