Fun to No Fun Ratio

Soaptree Yuccas blooming all over the place
I only enjoyed my trek about 10% as much as I usually do because my trusty hiking companion, Becca, had to stay home with a gimpy leg.  She's much better than she was yesterday, but still hobbling a bit.  Unfortunately for both of us, she'll be taking several more days off of hiking.  I don't want to have her hurry back only to injure her leg more severely.  She sure doesn't like it, though, giving me dirty looks all the while as I apologize profusely to her for not taking her along. :(
