A fine stretch of the legs in celebration of a milestone.

The weather map showed low dew points so I decided to go up for my fourth time this year. Maybe one of the last good weekend days for a while. Moisture is coming back this week and soon it will turn much colder. Made a late start on the trail at 0915 and got back just as cars at the trail-head were beginning to turn on their headlights. The aspen cathedral is still green but the low plants above tree line are brown. It is coming. Super windy and cold on the summit, but no clouds. Moved well and felt stronger today than in quite some time. A pleasure at any age but more so now. The gang on the summit sang Happy Birthday, copyright notwithstanding. That was fun and I really appreciated it. Good clear air. Sighted Four Peaks 110 miles to the south and Navajo Mountain about 120 miles to the north-northeast. Almost 10,000 square miles of God's country in view. That is more than all of Vermont, the 45th largest state, and five others.

Correction: In my senility I used a radius of 55 miles, or half the distance to Four Peaks. If I use the full 120 miles that gives 45,000 square miles of country to look at. Larger than Ohio and 17 others. Now that is a good chunk of country!
