Weekly Hike #8: A Photo of the Week, and a Mishap,
I'm going to get the photo of the week over with right away. That's Annette Lake, the destination for Weekly Hike #8. Isn't it beautiful? This is one of my favorite hikes, and we have done it in both 2011 and 2012.
This year, however, the hike wasn't as much fun as usual. Why, you ask? Well, about a half mile from the lake, I tripped over a tree root and fell and cut my forehead on a rock and jammed my elbow. Do you have any idea how much a head wound bleeds? Fortunately, I didn't have a concussion, my head stopped bleeding pretty quickly, and I didn't even notice how much my arm hurt until we had our picnic at the lake and hiked down the mountain. The next day I went to see the doctor and had my arm x-rayed (nothing broken), and everything has healed up nicely.
Because the hike wasn't much fun—though it certainly was memorable—I'm just going to treat you to a couple photos, and let it go at that. The next hike should be more fun and less eventful.
