Once again, thanks to Scott Wilson for the photo of our hike on Friday. My gosh, he does take wonderful photos.

As to the title, “exhausted” – it has nothing to do with hiking.

Simon and I had a firewood and gardening day: me mostly gardening and Simon mostly firewood. I just helped stack stuff – and Simon hugely helped with pulling out some monster roots.

I created two more garden beds today, because, hey – I don’t have nearly enough to do in the garden yet. (right!)

It’s amazing how exhausting that sort of physical work is – pulling out thimble berries, comfrey, and horsetail. Some roots are several feet long.

Although I have to say that I became quite handy with the pickaxe today. Is that a skill that goes on a resume?

I got so hot and sweaty out there that I finally took my T-shirt off. Simon said something about, “I love my life,”

Now all I have to do is get my pack ready for tomorrow: Cornice Ridge. A new hike at Kootenay Pass. Yay!
