My last post I was pondering my seventieth birthday and thinking about walking and swimming a bunch of miles to mark the occasion. My sister thought it was a good idea if I would just take it a bit easier and my brother thought I was nuts. They are probably both right. This photo matches my current thinking. Too much? Too little? Go this way? Go that!
Meanwhile, I leave Wednesday for the Reno Air Races. I am meeting my son and grandson there for several days of race watching and a lot of pit walking and gawking. Returning (back over the Sierra) from the Races next Sunday I am thinking about checking out some of the Pacific Coast Trail. The section through the Desolation Wilderness north of Echo Lake. I have loaded my backpack for a seven day backpacking trip but it will depend on what the weather looks like when I get up there. I think it is getting a bit late in the season but I won't know until I get there and talk to the Rangers. We'll see.
