Hike Then Shop

Gully just west of Tortugas Mountain
Becca and I did a hike of average duration this morning, and although we saw a few people on and about the mountain we ran into nobody--just the way we like it (unless it's our pal, Jimmy).  When we returned, and after I'd showered, I had to make the weekly trip to Albertsons to do some grocery shopping.  I also hit Target to pick up a few items, which I scanned and paid for at the self-service checkout.  As I've said in the past I don't mind going through the self-service aisle if I have only a small number of goods, but I'll be darned if I'm going to do all the work an employee should do.
Happiest hiker
