Yet another visit to this wonderful park!  I’m still trying to assess how my toe will do after having the cortisone shot.  The hike went smoothly and even ascending/descending wasn’t bad.  That said, it’s only been two days and I’m really more concerned about the long run.  There was no pain after the hike so I finally got a good nights sleep, which is very important!

Such a hazy day with showers in the morning and overcast at the end of the hike.  I only saw two people on the trail during the entire hike, which was wonderful.  I got out late, and as a result was hiking close to sunset, and loved the darkness that was falling upon me.  It’s a spooky feeling to be alone in the forest, while it’s getting dark, but I really love it!  A wonderful day!
