Angel and I headed out to inspect how the forest is recovering from the fire of 2008. You have to admire the Ponderosa pine in the photo that survived this fire. Charred up. Burned at the bottom, but still alive.
Got word from a couple of friends that they want to join me on the Pacific Crest Trail this July. Good news! I didn't really want to do the thing by myself. Since these guys are twenty years younger than me, I better start pushing myself away from the table and start more vigorous training. Forty five days until we hit the trail.
