Hiking is So Dangerous

Thursday, February 21, 2013

I had 3 fun filled days of snow hiking, but now I am on the heating pad emoticon

Saturday I joined Sangeetha for some Palm Springs Aerial Tram fun to San Jacinto Peak.

Sunday I joined the Best Hikes of So Cal on a fun snow hike up Mount Baldy.

My friend Kimla generously joined me at the peak

I had a fun time with Sangeetha and Panny who joined me for dinner after the hike. We sure were hungry.

On Monday I went with some of the High School girlfriends back up the Palm Springs Aerial Tram for snow shoe fun. After the hike, We relaxed in the Look Out Lounge with a nice glass of wine and appetizers from the Pines cafe. We ended our fun day with dinner on the Palm Springs Strip at Las Casuelas.

It was so much fun hiking in the snow for 3 days in a row, a big treat for me with bonus time laughing with friends.

On Tuesday I took my mom to the doctor and sat on the doctor's stool. The stool went flying and so did I. Yes sir, hiking sure is dangerous emoticon

I have been resting for a few days, no calorie burning, no fitness minutes and no fun. I am feeling a bit better today but not terribly happy. I am looking forward to getting up around tomorrow though.

I went over to my sisters this morning to make her some of my green smoothies. She has lost over 60 pounds and loving her new lifestyle change.

    I haven't been down that way for ages. Your pictures are pretty. I was just reading about groups climbing Mount Baldy, and I thought of you. I'm glad you went with your friends. Sorry you fell off the stool. Hope you feel better soon.
Congrats to your Sister! emoticon

    Looks like you need to watch out for those pesky doctor's stools, lol! Are you healing up now? Congrats to your sis for losing 60+ pounds. What is your green smoothie? I have been reading up about juicing lately, but need to get a juicer. Kind of expensive if I don't keep up with it.

    Yikes! Those wheely stools CAN be dangerous . . especially if you're just slightly off-balance when sitting down.

I'm glad you had fun hiking, though!

    Sorry to hear that you went flying. That can really hurt. I love hiking up in Mt Baldy. All the hikes sound amazing. Does Sangeetha work for LAUSD? My co instructor has the same name otherwise.

    Those stools are dangerous! Hiking doesn't appear to be as dangerous as that stool. Thank-you for sharing your photos and stories. The hiking areas look amazing and I'm so impressed where you go, up in those mountains. Very awesome. :)
