This morning we did easy hiking in the Alabama Hills. It’s a really cool area of boulders with an excellent view of the mountains. It’s just unbelievably beautiful there.
This is the Mobius Arch. It sort of does look like a Mobius strip, kind of.
This is a tiny little arch at the top of some more boulders.
It was a good outing. Jim’s hiking boots feel very good. We were concerned that there would be rubbing on the scar, but there was none. We are both very aware of the fact that we’ve been sedentary since November 11. I was also aware that I haven’t had the complete clearing out of my lungs. Any thought of hiking at higher altitudes just went out the window, I’m still short of breath.
Tomorrow promises to be harrowing. There’s a high wind warning starting at 1 pm for winds gusting to 70 mph. This is going to be unpleasant. Hopefully we’ll be able to leave two slides out, and we won’t get bashed by tree branches.
