Me? I drove to Nelson where it turned out the car didn’t need an alignment after all. Good news! Also – sigh – I guess I didn’t have to make that drive. On the other hand, I was able to pick up things there I needed and couldn’t get anywhere else so all is good.
By the time I got home at about 1.30, I was exhausted and collapsed on the bed for half an hour. Then, finally managed to get myself and the dogs to Galena for an hour or so walk and play in the creek.
Even gardening felt hard.
However, I am not one to concede to smoke – or much of anything else. Not when there is hiking to be done. Tomorrow I am going on my first solo trip in a very long time. Upping my comfort zone once again because the wildlife around here has me just a tiny bit on edge – something I never worried about on the island. So I’m not going to worry about it here either. My criterion for the hike was simple – it has to be car accessible. So – I have a long drive tomorrow – all the way to Nancy Green near Rossland to summit Old Glory. I doubt it will be as beautiful a hike as the mountains around here – but it has a ridge walk and views and a trailhead right at the paved road. What’s not to like?
