Oh one last thing ... if you are going to buy a National Parks pass and are an REI member you can get the pass for $39.99 instead of $50.00 directly from the National Parks. I bought a new pass Monday.
I still haven't been called in to the court house. Jury duty feels like what being on call must feel. I'm stuck having to spend the week around town. This will mostly bug me tomorrow because I wanted to leave for Yosemite and the Double Trouble GLS trip at noon but jury duty might mess that up. I told J. I was driving myself and to expect me some time between 5 p.m. and midnight. I'm skipping the Hoffman hike (this trip could have been called Triple Trouble).
Going to walk to Mallard hill again tonight with CCC -- we need our fix before I head off for the weekend challenging myself on the hiking trails of Yosemite. After the walk I have to get the car packed with my car camping and hiking gear. I may end up making a late trip to the grocery store to buy last minute food and drink items.
