Late afternoon on a Saturday was good. I saw very few people on the trail, just a couple of cyclists and hikers, and I do prefer that. It's great knowing that there are many of us who love this place, use it, but I love having it to myself for a little while.
My bones - joints - are feeling it, naturally. I didn't have any cramps last night but had some trouble getting my legs relaxed. It is hard to sleep when they keep reminding me that they are there.
