Decidedly Worse Than Yesterday

Trail to the sun
Froze my keister off out there this morning; in fact, as I was hiking up the single-track heading home I looked back and saw the poor nearly fatless thing sitting forlornly in the middle of the trail.

I went straight from a short, cold hike to Target and Albertsons to do my weekly shopping; at least it was warm in those two establishments.
