I JUMPED WELL ENOUGH IN FRONT OF THE PACK TO TAKE THIS PIC OF CARO AND CHRIS TURNING A CORNER.

SHARING THE VIEW WITH SOME MOUNTAIN BIKERS.


Woulda been much easier if I weren't trashed the night before. I don't know what even prompted me to get up from bed. But I did. And I walked the walk I told myself, come on, this is maybe one of the last walks Chris and I were to do together before he leaves for Canberra.

But damn it, I wish somebody had warned me about Jacob's Ladder! I would have stayed in bed and simply done another walk with Chris the next day, no problem.

One foot in front of the other, I urged myself as heavy beads of sweat burst from my pores like gushing water from a faucet. My lungs strained painfully against my chest. But I wasn't about to get beat by steps, no no no.

I counted 549 steep steps.

I could be wrong.

I was cross eyed by the time we got to the top.

Somehow initially I read the title as Jacob's Bladder! LOL!!!
