My ankle injury has kept me off the trails for a while, but I needed to get out and hike something to keep my sanity. I decided to hike up to Coon Bluff for a sunrise.

The trail to the cliffs is really defined now. The last time I was up here, it was more of a bushwhack. There's an easy trail up at the base of the cliff to the left. I did not do the entire loop, but mainly stayed at the overlook. I could hear the horses but did not see any.

I arrived pre-dawn and hiked up. The clouds and Mother Nature cooperated and I was treated to a lovely sunrise. Me, Mr Sun, Mother Nature and a few 100 of my new bee friends were all I had up there. Lot's of bicyclists in the parking lot. Getting in their miles before the inferno started, no doubt.

I find out this coming week if it's more rehab or a surgery on the ankle. Either way, not hiking when you are used to hiking every week is an adjustment for sure.
