So, this was a very unintentional nearly 3-month hiatus, but alas, the human body does what it wants…
Just after the little adventure I’ll be posting about here in a minute, I started a new job (yay!), wound up in the emergency room (boo!), was out of work for a week (yikes!), went back to work, followed up with a doc, got scheduled for surgery, and found myself getting sliced open 12 days ago (oy!).
It looks like this Spring will not see me on hardcore mountains, but back starting out at beginner level again. Ah, well. There are far worse things than a month of recovery.
On to happier and prettier things than me spending a few days hopped up on narcotics, I give you: the Olympic Mountain Range from Hurricane Ridge on a FREAKING cold winter’s day!
