The conditions were less than ideal – but we did it. So did the dogs – although now they are paying for it. Lots of postholing in the upper areas.
Lots of postholing for Simon too who got so deep into a tree well at the top of the second knoll that I had to get down and dig his snowshoe out. And he hurt his knee and hip. Luckily, he had his knee brace packed.
But other than that – it feels nice to have a good, clear track for the entire thing. If it was earlier in the season, I would now extend the whole thing to go up through the upper cut block to the Butter lookout. But not now. It’s all getting too soft and slushy.
So – speaking of slushy – off to Mount Lepsoe again tomorrow. Yay!
And I am so done with discussing politics with far right-wingers. There’s too much attack involved.
I could go on about that but there comes a point when the whole things feels so icky – yeah – better to let it go.
The good that has come out of this – do more and more research. Check facts over and over again – and if you have to lean any way at all – lean toward the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Lean toward giving your fellow human a helping hand up. Lean toward empathy (stop giggling, Nicky). Lean toward helping the planet; Lean toward caring for and speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.
