This morning was another nice one and we had our full breakfast from 9:30 to 11 o'clock while lounging in the sun. Nick has big plans for the day and I'm going to rest.
At noon, Nick went for a 6 mile run and accomplished it in 52 minutes. He's planning to run a half marathon in April and is getting ready for it.
At 2 o'clock Nick filled a backpack and headed for Palm Canyon.A number of years back Yuma and I tried to hike much further into the canyon to see where it goes, but the huge boulders we had to climb made us decide to turn back before we could accomplish our goal.
Nick decided he would give it a try today. He is better prepared and much younger so I wished him luck and off he went in a cloud of dust 😁
Yuma and I did nothing but lay around till Nick returned. Yuma worries when one of us leaves so he kept watch. At 5:30 he was back. A little tired with running and hiking but he had a great time.
From here it is Nick's story.
