My right calf has been aching like a poor stony bastard wriggling to feel better. It all started after that 12 mile Mt. Baldy hike. The hike was great, and I felt fine, but within two short days my calf erupted in protest. Instead of amputation (which was almost more desireable in the moment) I have rested, iced, and babied it the way a young mother cradles a newborn.

Mt. Baldy

Just returned from a Mt. Baldy hike -- found myself 3 miles in when I realized the trail was not turning towards the tall mountain I had climbed in my past.

Ended up hiking to the top of Mt. Cucamonga, which was still a difficult 12 mile jaunt in the woods.

There was a guy hiking a massive 22 mile loop to Mt. Baldy -- more than I could bite off at this point, but someday...
