Hike 12: Pushing Tin Loop

7.2km の面白い名前の道、”Pushing Tin” という道をぐるりと回って帰ってくるハイキングでした。The Pushing Tin loop is a 4.5 mile easy trail.

なぜか飛行機が次から次へと飛んでいました。We didn’t know why, but many airplanes were flying over us one after the other.

それがこの道の名前の由来になったのでしょうか。飛行機をアルミ缶に見立てて、どんどん押し込んでいく(飛ばしていく)管制官たちを描いた”Pushing Tin”という映画もあります。でも、誰も本当の理由は分かりません。 Someone said that that could be the reason for the name of the trail. There is a movie, “Pushing Tin“. It is about air traffic controllers at an airport. Their job is to push tins (airplanes) one after the other. But no one knows the true origin of the name.

タンブルウィードはコロコロと転がって、どこに行くのか考えたことがありますか? Have you ever thought about where tumbleweeds go after tumbling around?

赤ちゃんサボテンの赤い実。鳥の食べ物になるのでしょうか。We found a baby cactus with red fruits. Could they be food for birds?

春の朝、楽しい会話で一杯のハイキングでした。One spring morning, we had a conversation full of fun while we hiked.
