It’s been about two weeks since my wife has had meniscus surgery, on her knee, and she won’t be hiking until next week. We just went for her post-surgery visit and she is doing very well. She has almost no pain, except for the areas with the stitches, and she’s been very active on her feet. We’re optimistic that we can ramp up our hiking in the coming months, and that she’ll be ready for the summer activities (assuming the Coronavirus doesn’t derail everything 😦 )!
My son came home this weekend so I’m fortunate to have a hiking partner for this weekend, which is very nice! We opted to hike on a forest road today. Not very exciting but nobody seen the entire day! The best part of the hike was having this solitude, and also experiencing some snow falling. 🙂
I also got a new phone, the Samsung S20 smartphone. I’ve been needing a new phone for a while, and this phone has an impressive set of cameras installed. It will take a while to get used to the new camera app, but I’m hoping the additional capabilities will help me get the type of pictures I enjoy taking. The included photos are my first attempts with the S20 phone.
