Trip to Page AZ

Actually I have been out of town for two weeks for work. The week of June 8th I was in CO. I didn't take any picture in CO. I did end up in Urgent Care with Pink Eye. That was fun, NOT. I was even sent to the hotel early on Wednesday since my eyes look miserable. I did go to my room and laid down for 2 hours and slept. I seldom sleep during the day. I must have needed it. I was home for a weekend and on Monday the 15th I and two other co-workers drove to Page AZ.

I did do some hiking and took some pictures of the high desert. This is Horseshoe Bend. I was leaning very close to the edge of the ridge I was on to get this picture. I was leaning against a large rock to steady myself. I did get dizzy after I took this picture, I'm not really crazy about heights that have no railing. That is the Colorado River down there, it's heading to the Grand Canyon.

Here is my picture at the end of the trail. I haven't done a lot of exercise since November because of Plantar Fasciitis, so I was glad to finish this 1.5 mile round trip hike, and did it in good time, 20 minutes back which was mostly up hill. I did take my time. It was a good feeling, so foot pain or not, I'm going back to the gym. My foot was no worst for the activity. Yes I did get rained on during my hike, but it wasn't a hard rain and it didn't slow me down any. Matter of fact it felt good.
