Hiking 1:55:00 [1]

Planned to bike, but too soggy in the morning so we met Dee for a hike from Castle Glen through Scenic Caves.
Spectacular woods, but I stepped on something under the leaves while just walking, my foot rolled and heard a loud crack from my ankle.
Hurt so much it took me quite a while for the nausea to die down. We had to baiI and I managed to walk back to the car via easier route.

No biking on such a great day. Nice and swollen now. All the cool kids are spraining ankles.

Hiking 55:00 [1]

Bash wanted to see if we could meet the Boultbees as their 80k run passed near us. I took trekking poles and walked gingerly, but it took a while for my ankle to warm up and stop hurting. We missed the ladies, but at least had a great hike on the Bruce West of ABC2.
There may be a connector between Bruce and Kolapore Church trails about 500m from the road, but it was too late and I was too sore to explore.

Knee was feeling better after some more easy days, so I managed to convince Tarno and AD to keep the pace easy in Pretty River. No bombing the downhills, and even walked some uphills.

Scouting our property lines, and a Western route to the Bruce which won’t work on skis. Back to our original trail with some fine tuning of the route, then some clearing.

Hike with Goose, LD, Bash and the hounds. We bushwhacked to the Bruce, over the cliffs to the UTOC cabin, and back by Kolapore highway. Stunning!
