Found a shiny new .22 caliber shell casing in the major east/west arroyo, which is always cause for concern because you can't know for certain the firearm IQ of somebody shooting down there. I wish the area was patrolled more often by the sheriff's department, but we live in a huge county with few resources.
We only hiked 1.2 miles this morning because of my bruised (cracked?) ribs, which hurt with every step. Now (late morning) I've taken two Tylenol tablets and am wearing a Salonpas lidocaine patch on my rib cage.
