|A favorite sandy spot west of Tortugas Mountain|
There were quite a few other outdoor enthusiasts on and about the mountain on this first day of the new year, and we had a few encounters just as we started out. But then we bushwhacked over to the edge of the outback and didn't bump into anyone else. It felt pretty good to get outdoors today, but I can tell my stamina is still not back to normal.
