Couldn't sleep well last night because my foot and ankle were killing me. Somehow, I managed to irritate the nerve on the outside of my ankle and it throbbed most of the night. After soaking and placing an Ace bandage on it for support I'm ready for another day.
Got up at sunrise, so I could get a few pictures of the sun hitting Saddle Mountain. Sadly, they didn't come out as I had hoped. Didn't really catch the golden morning glow.
Got a text from Dolly letting me know that our grandson, Lane has graduated from college in Orlando, Florida and his graduation will be streamed live tomorrow morning.
Nick went on a 7 mile run this morning trying to beat the heat of the day. I stayed home and did the dishes and laid outside enjoying the morning air and mountain view.
At 2 o'clock I asked Nick if he wanted to see the canyon on the other side of Saddle Mountain. Not easy to get to and unless you're a local or someone tells you about this beautiful canyon, you would never know it's there.There is a fence that needs to be closed at all times except for entering and exiting the canyon.
With about a mile to the end of the canyon, the road became too rough for my poor body to handle, so we parked and walked.
