Up, Up and Away

Hiking alongside the old single-track
The Beckster and I did a quick hike in the lower desert before returning home to finish packing for a trip to the high country.  We got up here by 12:30, unpacked, ate lunch and did a few chores before I settled down to do this blog.  When Dr. K and I were loading and unloading the Jeep it seemed like we had enough stuff for several weeks here in High Rolls.  Unfortunately we can only stay through Monday.  We'll get a nice taste of the mountain climate, though; it's supposed to drop below freezing tonight.
