Yesterday marks a week for Jeff being completely free of his cane. Though he cannot yet move his middle toes and there is still a lot of hardness and some swelling, he is finally able to bare weight directly on his foot. To celebrate, and to liberate ourselves, we decided a hike was quite in order.
We planned on a short stint through the valley on the Northern ridge, but somehow wound up taking a hike straight up the Southern ridge, through the Aspen groves and descending nearly four hours later 1/4 mile East of home.
It. Was. Wonderful.
Here are a few pictures of our hike.
