Bookmarks, which I use, work great for small numbers of
files. But since I generate tons of small files, I keep an
index list of files, with their descriptions, plus the
entire path and file name for that file. So they look
something like this:

/home/rod/vacation.txt How I spent my summer vacation.

I have a macro that copies the entire file name and path and
pastes it into C-x C-f. I've bound it to a function key so
my index kind of works like a hyperlink.

If you're visiting your index file, then `M-x find-file-at-point'
will do the trick.  Or just `C-x C-f' with this in your ~/.emacs:
