The day started out with ominous clouds with rain a constant threat, but it never amounted to more than a few drops. I could see the rain falling in the distance, though. It was also a bit windy and cool which led me to wear a rain jacket, but it warmed up nicely in the afternoon.
Plenty of flowers out and one great view at the start of the hike. The views weren’t very noteworthy later in the hike. However, the flowers were everywhere, and I took plenty of pictures of them.
Today is when my right toe started to really hurt in earnest. I didn’t worry about it much and figured it would go away. I did, however, ice my foot after I got home. I guess this might be the beginning of an adventure for this toe issue. 😦 Ugh.
