Our weather doesn't look good until perhaps Monday but I'm hoping for Sunday; might have to work Monday. I was fortunate to get out Sunday hiking fairly hard [for my fat self] and then a delightful walk on Granite Creek Tuesday. For many of us the greatest of Greater Yellowstone is in the 88% of the ecosystem outside the two National Parks. Gonna be an interesting summer.
Have a marvelous Memorial Day Weekend folks!
The industries of fear and deceit are far too successful these days. Divisive forces should never be indulged.
Getting my sailboat ready to launch. The marina was closed until May 15 because of the stay-at-home order. Now I'm scrambling to get everything ready before May 28. I'm off by myself when working on the boat so physical distancing is not a problem.
Normally I'd make time for a day hike or two at the Pine Haven Recreation area -- my favorite local spot to get out in the woods. But it's located in Sanford which was devastated by the recent flooding. So I doubt I'll be able to go there for a while.

Staying local. I'll get out for a couple hikes/runs.
Our local, and typically busy, State Park is opening at 50% capacity. Turning cars away once they reach that threshold and only allowing another car in as one leaves. So I expect the line to be a mile long. I'll have to remember to avoid that road at all costs.
Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.
I'm staying home, but I expect to enjoy it tremendously. There's plenty of good walking with big hills, lots of wildlife and fresh air. I'll cook something tasty every day and play the piano as much as I can. Not working for a few days will be huge relief.
