|Yesterday's lovely trail|
|Hey, come back here!|
It was truly a lovely outing anyway, so I'm glad I keep forgetting my remaining obligations and get the chance to enjoy the outdoors, even if it isn't on a Thursday. Today is the last day of the month, and I can only hope that by the time we get to the end of May, our social distancing rules, while not gone, will be relaxed enough for us to get close enough to each other to have a beer together. I miss my friends.
We did have a Zoom gathering with other hikers this week, thanks to Al inviting us to see each others' faces at least. We will be doing that again soon, I'm sure, but it's just not the same. Better than nothing, but still. This extrovert (me) is simply not accustomed to all this solitude. Then again, this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and if I get through it intact as an old timer I will consider it a win.
