It’s so late why can’t I sleep
So today was interesting
Saw my first wild rattlesnake (that wasn’t at my parents’ house)
Rari almost stepped on it.
Discovered my as-of-yesterday unknown dislike for that stubborn, stubborn willow. You try walking through a canyon of it. It took us 3 hours to go ~1.5 miles.
Fell 15 feet down a rockface and busted my ankle and gained more than a few bruises.
But thankfully nothing more serious than that,
Where I fell from, taken halway-up on the way back out.
Yes, I had to walk back out in all that crap willow on my bad foot.
Where I landed, taken from the same spot. I kind of zig-zagged.
Rari said I fell gracefully, and that she’d have needed orthodontic work if she’d fallen.
But she’s a mountain goat and climbed down no problem so pttttttth.
My butt is so bruised. I landed on it and my ankle. (Don’t worry, no pics)
Yes, sitting does hurt.
And yes, I’m working tomorrow. Just not out in the field.
