I was so much older then. I’m younger than that now.

A line from Bob Dylan’s My Back Pages, and a tribute to these guys:

First Bilbo, who is a meteorologist/climatologist from the DC area.

He’s 75 and has hiked very long trails all over the world

Secondly, to “Yeah, but” (husband and hiking partner of “No butt”) who has thru hiked the AZ Trail 4 times and is now 80!!!

Finally a huge shout out to my great friend Mike who drove a long way on a difficult road to find me this AM, deliver some delicious trail magic, and hike with me for 7 miles.

How great is that???

I’ll leave you with this

Be vigilant!!!
