Emmett and I spent a lovely Sunday morning and afternoon hiking the Heaton Flats trail in the Angeles National Forest. While it was only a 6.2-mile hike, we could feel the elevation gain burn in our legs...an average of 650 feet per mile. The last time we did a big elevation hike was way back in August when we were in Mineral King. So, needless to say, I sit here now, very glad for the fresh strawberry lemonade spiked with vodka that Emmett has made me while hoping the ache in my legs will go away very soon. What did we do when we got home? Well, I took a one-hour nap while Emmett washed and waxed my car, did a load of laundry, and prepped the veggies for the Zen Soup I made when I got up. I love that man.
