We went back out to a favorite forest road and gave it a try at about the 2000 foot elevation level. There were some really nice clouds to photograph. Most snow was gone with a small amount at the side of the road. My back did better than expected today and this was one of the longer hikes and elevation gains this year. I’m a bit afraid I might be pushing it too fast?
I know my leg lift isn’t completely dialed in yet, so things may get even better. One thing I forgot to mention is that Dr. Kaluza said not to expect my hip/spine/neck to realign for up to a year, due to my age!! 😦 I was a little surprised but then thought about how long my back has been in pain (6-7 years), and then it made sense.
Quite a nice day. I’m looking forward to when I won’t be limited by my back issue, and this was my first taste. 🙂
