Ahhh... we had a huge hiking group today and I had a great time (even though my body tells me differently today). We split off at Parsnip Springs-- one group took the canyon and deep pools and the other took the switchbacks. I went with the switchback groups and, well, I'll have to say a couple profanities could be heard from me. I think I overdid myself a little today but trudged though it and made it back in one piece (though I did finds voicemails later asking whether I was alive or not
). Also, my back must finally getting stronger after surgery-- this was the first hike since that I haven't had spasms after! It was a great use of a day and I'm always happy to meet more HAZ folks. Thanks for organizing another great hike, Chris!
