Junk Steps

As you may or may not know from reading some of my posts here, or from my crap personal blog, I’ve been dealing with some back issues over the past five months that has made mountain biking less than fun. I could bore you at length about the issue, but I won’t, I’ll just say that last week I was craving time in the woods, and figured that a hike at our local county park might be a better option, and easier on my back, than riding my mountain bike, so off I went.

Oddly enough, at the end of my five-mile hike around the woods with my camera my back seized up and I could barely get in the car! Ice, heat, a hot shower, some pain meds, and a few drinks late that afternoon eventually got it under control and the pain subsided. Fast forward nearly five days and I’m sitting in my office chair just recently recovered from another round of those same back spasms, an issue completely unrelated to my ongoing on the bike discomfort. Good grief, I’m falling apart!

Since sitting and typing does little to aggravate my back, I figured this might be a good time to post up some of the shots I took stumbling around the woods that day.

Thanks for looking.
