If you hike in vans, I both respect you and question your choices.

As a bit of a background, almost all of Texas is experiencing a severe drought. In the eight years I have lived here, it was only in the last two that I witnessed the water levels in our lake drop drastically, and in the case of O.C Fisher all that is left is a dry lakebed. We have about twelve months of water left. In response, we have initiated a system to collect water from the Hickory aquifer. While this has the potential to solve quite a few problems, the water is radioactive. Geologically, the rocks containing the hickory aquifer are Precambrian in age (approximately 570 million years ago). At this point in time, the rocks that formed were  predominantly granite and metamorphics. Granite in particular can have high levels of uranium therefore making it radioactive. To be fair, we experience differing intensities of radioactivity on a daily basis but you know there is a problem when radioactive water is the only viable solution to a water crisis.

To get a bit more specific, I have seen less animals at my local state park and more in city limits. For example, there are deer beginning to come into my neighborhood because of a small stream. I have also seen red foxes (a very private animal) that have been hit by cars. The prevalence of these animals is worrying me because I have never seen them until about a month ago. Witnessing the crisis my town is going through prompts me to study Hydrology because in reality, we could have prevented almost all the issues arising in simple ways.

I’m itching to leave. Guadalupe Mountains NP is a little more than a month away and I am so stoked!

I met Jennifer Pharr Davis! She holds the record for the fastest time hiking the AT and was one of National Geographic’s (2012) adventurer of the year. While listening to her speak, I learned a lot about myself. The little voice in my head that keeps telling me to try new things and to never stop seeking adventure is so much louder and I can’t wait to find my way in the world. I owe this wonderful woman every ounce of my gratitude. (Excuse my tired face y’all) #jenniferpharrdavis
