Rehab wk 1: Sat afternoon SnowDude took me to Mono Lake for a short walk and to get some fresh air. It was good to get out.

Eureka Sand Dunes, Death Valley

Rehab: A week after surgery, the only thing I'm climbing is the walls. SnowDude drove us to Eureka Sand Dunes so I could get out, and I was able to hike to one of the lower dunes, maybe a mile or so. It felt good to get out. We drove to Beatty, NV for the night. (wk 158)

we hiked to the first bump in front from parking area on left of photo (not in pic)

Wellobviously I've been under a rock! I had no idea you were taken ill. I am sure you will recoup fast. Indeed I never could yet figure out how you manage to be in so many places in a single summer! Best wishes Snow Nymph!

Re:Rehab week 2, Convict lake

Duane, going to Mammoth. Nicer to sit by the fireplace than listen to city noise in LA.

B, needs pedals too!

Convict Lake, Sierra Nevada

PHOTOS: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/72 ... 9617_ARkYw


Rehab Week 2: I asked SnowDude to drop me off at Convict Lake while he snowboarded. I carried a small pack and walked slowly around the lake. The south side was a little icy on slopey trail, so I turned back. I walked to the Restaurant at Convict Lake, and even tho they didn't open for another 1.5 hrs, they let me sit in the bar while waiting for SnowDude. I had 2 glasses of wine before he got there. We had dinner there for his birthday. Awesome food as always

I like that first pic of Convict Lake.

I was hoping you were coming WAY north, maybe could have had some coffee or whatever and tried to reach madeintahoe, who I haven't met, but email some.:(

Minaret Summit, Mammoth Lks

PHOTOS: http://snownymph.smugmug.com/gallery/72 ... 7554_khGcd



Rehab wk 2: I walked about 1/4 mile to the bus shuttle, which took me to Mammoth Mtn Main Lodge. I wasn't sure where I was going, but I ended up on Minaret Summit. Walking on groomed snow was nice for the shoulder. Beautiful day and great views!

Great views

Keep up the rehab work. My wife had shoulder surgery before the holiday season so I kind of know what you are going through. I was real surprised at how aggressive her doctor was with the physical therapy.

Good luck,
Flip
