Today was one of those fun hikes – not strenuous, although I keep thinking that it should have been given how steep the trail was. And maybe it would have been if we’d been travelling fast. But – ha! Try moving quickly when you’re scrambling up or under blowdown every ten steps.
I’d like to note that I have about 13 new cuts on my legs and my left arm is still bleeding! So there! Top that!
I know I always strive to have good summer legs (exceptionally good so far this year) but now I also am developing good summer arms. How about that?
Krista is such a joy to hike with – and of course, Nicky – my hiking bestie – we had fun, even through all the prickly, scratchy bits.
And then we got back and I had casually mentioned to Nicky that when it came time to buy new hiking boots, REI in Spokane was the way to go. Then, I get home, get out of the bath and hear my phone ring. So I get the phone – standing naked and slightly bleeding (arm) in the upstairs hall and she mentions that REI has a 30% off sale that ends tomorrow.
You know where this is heading, right?
You bet – road trip tomorrow!
If there’s no post tomorrow, just know that it’s going to be a very long road trip.
