Hiking, Hillary, and Hot Spots
Whatever happened to sleeping in on the weekends?? We got up at o'dark 30 on Saturday to help set up a Stampede Pancake Breakfast outside Ten Thousand Villages and then ...whoosh...were on the road by 9am with our neighbors, Catherine and Marty, for a hike along the Bow Falls/HooDoo trail.. (google Hoo Doos.)
and then back to Calgary, after a deelish dinner in mountain movie-town Canmore, to catch the sunset outside our window.
So we'll sleep in on Sunday? no! We got up AGAIN at o'dark 30 on Sunday (there ARE people up at that hour!) to go cheer on our "daughter-on-loan" HRH HPH, aka Hillary, as she smoked! the 1/2 marathon. Way to go Hillary! We all walked to church afterwards which was a mistake as hard-working H should have gone straight home for R&R...Rehydration and Rest. OOOh I hope we get to keep our job as surrogate parents after this error.
But what about Hot Spots? My USFS brother, Alan, has been out firespotting in California. Can you see the smoke in the background? They're getting cooler temps out there which should help, but I don't like it when I hear a fire has jumped a fire line like in Big Sur. Stay safe there, brodder!
