Sleep: 7 hours in bed, 1030-530. In late but woke up naturally...too early, but felt rested.
Body: Still have sore glutes/hams. Thanks Dustin! Digestive system freaking out due to last night's fat-eating fest and AM influx of vegetables.
Otherwise excellent. Hike felt wonderful despite being under-hydrated and low on food. Getting out of the car an hour after hiking suuuucked. Must remember to stretch after the next one!
Brain: Day 1 of vacation, doing great! Many last-minute chores knocked out before Hop even twitched a toe. Yay, productivity!
Drive up was good, bunch of reading knocked out.
We did not climb Ely's. Road work and flood damage had our vehicle approach totally different in a new lot so I was turned around. Basically, at our first T I went left instead of right so we hoofed it all over the place N of the actual peak. I kept getting upset with myself and then reminding myself I was still walking in the North Woods with my husband, and wasn't that wonderful? Which it was, of course.
Our cabin is great except very close to the road, which is very loud. Can't hear traffic inside, but sitting at the fire ring is not as peaceful as hoped. Damn. But at night and at 5am, it's pretty lovely.
Pic of the Day: Washed-out bridge on Skyline Drive. It looks familiar but I'm not sure if it was on the 50k route or I am just imagining that.
