Every hike a surprise!

I love hiking and every hike has a surprise inside...a colorful fungus or moss, a new brook, a lovely overlook, an interesting tree. I went for a 5 mile hike that had all of those and then some...including a hole in a flat part of the trail covered with leaves into which my foot went, snap snap went the ankle, and down I went. I ended up walking out on a broken ankle for 2 miles. I can't put weight on it for 4-6 weeks now, probably followed up with much for tgiving day, xmas shopping, even xmas, and who knows what else.

Not what I thought my mentally and physically healthy hike would provide! I guess it'll be awhile before I get to go hiking again....but I'm building upper body strength with wheel chair rolling and crutches.

Rats! Rats! Rats!
