Perspective

Ray dropped Kung Fu, Day Late and I off at inspiration point in the late morning. Tough day for me. The climb was continuous and my calf still hurts making it difficult and slow going. Finally reached the top of Baden Powell late afternoon. A beautiful vista and I'm sure there are days when you can see all the way to the pacific. Today was not one of those days as haze limited the view in all directions. Kung Fu gave me an aleve which helped where ibuprofen did not. Hiked on to reach little jimmy spring and campground. Delicious and clear water flowing from a pipe in the ground. When I reached the campground about 15 hikers were there already. More would arrive later. Quite the little party by the fire including a great marshmallow roast.

My perspective on the day was totally changed. Pain gone, belly full and surrounded by a crowd of new friends i'm now going to sleep with only positive thoughts.
