1st trip
After fighting COVID for several weeks, I was finally OK'd to leave home isolation. I was definitely slower than I'd like and I could feel the lack of exercise after several weeks and a lung infection. Still, getting out felt amazing and I was glad to get some mileage under my feet again.

Fixed up some stuff on the boat and took it out on Connected Lakes. Still doesn't like the upwind at all, but handling otherwise is fine. Some good gusts got me moving pretty well. Still not sure if I should bring this or my kayak on my Powell camping trip in a couple weeks. The lack of upwind drive is concerning, though it is almost certainly operator error. I also need to craft a new leeboard with a hoist point to keep it in place.

Went with my friend down to Crawford for a fall kayak to see the fall colors. Holy cow the water is so low but the colors are so nice. Ended up spending most of the time just drifting and talking, not much actual paddling.

Wanting to get some more lake time before the end of the season and with my sailboat down until next week waiting for epoxy to cure, I grabbed my own kayak to scrub away the problems of the inflatable. What a lovely time on the water and I am reminded as to why I like my kayak so much.

Took my friend out in her two-person inflatable kayak. Had a good time but I really dislike that kayak. As she said, "the yak is wack."

Took my new (to me) sailing dinghy out on Corn Lake after doing some refurb on some nasty wood. I wasn't able to get the GPS on the app up and running right away, so there's probably another 10 minutes and 3-4 passes that the GPS data didn't capture. Lots of fun, looking forward to tinkering and doing some more! Eventually I hope to get my dogs out on this, but it needs some tuning first.

Finally the smoke has mainly cleared from the valley and the temperatures are dropped too. All in all, a nice evening for a quick hike. Took a new-to-me side trail up the bottom of the wash to a wrecked car. I think it might be a social trail but my hiking partner told me it was kosher. Either way it was quick and pretty. Felt good to be hiking again after the heat and fire.

Taking kids hiking again. Tough out here to find cooler/high-elevation hikes during the summer to take kids while still being inside the NCAs, especially during a pandemic. Made it happen, and had a great trip with the kids. Winded since hiking has been limited recently. Hopefully the temps continue to decline and I can get out more.

Mounted bike medic for another protest again, this time met with a bunch of armed white nationalists. Strange times.

It has been too damn hot here in the Grand Valley for any sort of real hiking recently, plus I've been occupied with my work providing support for protests here. But I decided to take a week off and bake myself half to death in an even hotter place, rural southeastern Utah. Met up with a couple other scientists for some socially-distanced fieldwork in areas I've been working for over a decade not. Got to complete a project (mapping a tracksite digitally) that had been on the radar for years, and we found a new skull eroding out of the rocks that we're going to have to come back for. I just hope that when we come out to carry the rock saw up the hill to this site, it isn't 100+ degrees again! :o

Acting again as a medic, walked in solidarity with with people of color in the community as a medic. A teach-in was held at Colorado Mesa University with almost 600 people. Momentum is growing and I am very glad to be a part of this.

I've put lots of my hiking plans on hold as it has gotten hotter and there is a more urgent need for me to focus my energy on the peaceful protests happening around the Grand Valley. I was going to be a bike-mounted medic today but ended up walking most of the time as there were some stragglers who got separated and I wasn't going to leave them behind. A very positive outcome, lots of energy and support and the city council was packed with tons of non-white folks. GJ isn't like some of the cities that make the news, and the focus of these protests is to be proactive; so that problems in policing don't begin to spiral out of hand. We've got a chance to make a real positive change and set the way forward for rural communities, and I'm glad to see organic youth leadership driving this change and honored to be able to play a role in it.
