Thanks to Peter Berkey for the photo – hiking at Whitewater Canyon. Yesterday. Today is a bit of a catch-up day – shopping for camp food for later in the week, filling up the truck for Gimli tomorrow, baking bread for sandwiches – and so on.
Simon has a catch-up day too – paperwork and inside stuff while the rain has poured down out there.
Hey! No need to water the garden.
Looking back: loved the hike yesterday. Did not love the creek crossing. Boulders are just awful for me. But I did it in the end and now I know where the crossing is that I can negotiate fairly easily.
Yup – my hiking Achilles Hell – boulders.
At least I know it and I have to compensate for it.
I’ve been living with low-level anxiety for at least a week now. It seems to be about all sorts of things. I’m anxious about Gimli tomorrow and the final scramble to the ridge. (having promised myself I can stop if I don’t feel comfortable) – anxious about my backpacking trip ( how will I manage five days without pooping? -Yeah – I’m one of those people who can’t poop in the “wild.”)
Anxious about things I don’t even know I’m anxious about.
Must find a way to tame this beast.
Best way to start is to let it be – don’t make it angrier by poking it with a stick.
