Hike No 8 (October 9, 2010)

This is a 2.5 mile hike through a boulder strewn wash to a very cool canyon on the end.  I went with Rose and she was such a good sport with my lack of speed. Not to mention her great advise along the way regarding techniques and skills. It was not a hard hike but there was some scrambling and bouldering that really made it a good workout for me. My legs loved it and they are tired now from the good work.

I am beginning to really see results of me efforts. I am seeing that my balance is getting better and my confidence in what my knees can take is increasing. My arms are starting to feel more like accessories rather than just useless intrusive things hanging off the sides of my shoulders. I didn’t use my poles in this hike except for about a 50 yard section….and that was more confidence than need.
