Finally done with the hike through the Hoover Wilderness. We both went in strong, and we walked out gimpy. My legs hurt, my achilles tendons hurt bad, and I was all sore in my shoulders. Romy got some blisters and had crazy bruised hips! But we made it and we will heal.
Today I am making our first real batch of almond milk. I say real, because I now have the proper strainer, a fine-mesh nylon bag. Almond milk is much healthier than cow's milk and it tastes better too!
Today I finished making the doors, and putting them on the hinges. I also covered two of the doors with fabric and they are finished (except for a door knob or something). I am growing an herb garden on top. I have stevia, basil, and peppermint.
We had heard from a friend that there was a gray whale up in Redwood NP where the Klamath river crosses US 101, so we felt we had to check it out. That's the whale (a 45 ft female) behind me. She apparently showed up in late June with her calf in tow during the migration from Baja California to Alaska, and the calf has moved on without her.
Jenn, Nicole, Marcel, Marcel, and I went to the MUSE concert to see Crosby, Stills, & Nash, and the Doobie Brothers (among others). We didn't realize beforehand that it was an anti-nuclear power/weapons concert, but oh well. So some songs were good, and others were preachy and not so good.
