|Beautiful sky over Lake Padden|
Just as we started out on our walk this morning, someone shouted at me to take a picture of this scene. I whipped out my cellphone and without stopping, just slowing down a bit, I captured the above picture. Not only a fabulous sky, but also a calm lake that reflected back the sky and the bit of fog. I'll probably also put this one on Facebook so it will get maximum exposure. A serendipitous picture, for sure.
By tomorrow I should be back to my usual self, but I have been feeling every last one of my years as I recover from that strenuous hike. It's the hardest one we do: almost nine miles (which isn't our longest), but it was the 4,000-foot (1,200 m) elevation gain and loss that caused my agony, I suspect. While I was walking this morning with the ladies, I didn't hurt at all, but now I am happy to be ensconced in my favorite chair.
