Sore today

Yesterday afternoon I went on a fairly long hike up into the hills (well actually, here in NE they call them Mountains, but in Calif they would only be Hills).

I did one of my patented aerobic hikes, non-stop, to the fire tower. I talked with the fire ranger for about a half and hour.

Then I continued along the ridge to the location of one of Scott's geocaches. It took me about 45 mins to figure out how to cover the last 10 feet to the cache. It's ON TOP of a big boulder with steep sides. I had no climbing gear, and no buddy with me to carry me home if I fell. But I did it.

I then retraced my route by the tower and back down the trail. Duration overall: 4 hrs.
