This is what yesterday looked like. Dismal.
Today was cold, so there was hiking. Plus, Jim's bike was still covered in sand and goo. We had very pretty clouds and patterns of sun on the mountains.
Today was a really good day. As you all remember, Jim ruptured his Achilles in November 2015. It has been a long slog back. After healing of the tendon, then there was rebuilding of the lost muscle, then there was getting one's head back on straight after such a traumatic thing. The getting of the head back on straight takes time. Anyway, today was a milestone for us - Jim hiked like the Jim of yore. We equaled our time up to the overlook before the Achilles, and then equaled our previous descent times. I mention this so that if you're ever hurt, you should remember it's going to take time, but just keep plugging at it. So we were happy about today's hike.
