After Woods Canyon Lake, I stopped in Pinetop for lunch at Aliberto's. (Alot like the {fill in blank}berto's here in Phoenix, but I liked it better than the chorizo burrito I had the next day at Los Corrales.) Like I do when I travel anywhere, I read the local real estate magazines. Fancy "rustic" looks ... odd ... but it appears there are some good deals on horse properties in places like Concho and Linden. I had not expected to check into my motel -- Mountain Haven Inn (next to the Super 8 ) -- until 2:30, so after eating, I called ahead and asked if I could check in early. Even though the owners were at their daughter's soccer game, Don came over to let me in, which I really appreciated. Stay there if you are in the area. :)

After a bit of a rest, I headed out to do my second acclimatization hike of the day. Since I just added the original description, you can read more about it there. No sense in boring you twice. I will say, though, that both here and earlier at Woods Canyon, I *really* noticed the affect of elevation on my cardio, and within a few yards at that. Post hike my BP was 100/72 with a pulse of 104.

Got really dark as I hiked, and there was much thunder to the east, but I avoided any rain, which was a good thing as the trail was muddy enough.

Got back to the motel, and found a pinkie nail sized blister on my right heel. No big. Was looking forward to the next day, and a pair of 6.5 milers (Ice Cave Trail and Timber Mesa Trail.)
