Well June 2nd was a few weeks ago and unfortunately Mother Nature literally gave us lots of rain. The hike was CANCELLED and I was disappointed. Postponed to the following morning, I prepared myself mentally as I did a few things around the yard, rain and all.
That next morning however, as I dressed in my insect repellent hiking pants, shirt and shoes, the pain in my back just wouldn't stop. Was it too much heavy lifting while doing yard work in the rain? Was it that bag of bird seed that I carried from the garage to the metal bin? Or was it when I began to slip (but caught myself thank goodness!) walking through the muck? Whatever caused it, "I have to bail," I thought as I texted Bill. At my age, one wrong step on a slippery slope or rocky ledge could have serious consequences.
A few days later after I went on my own hike.
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
