"I also have in mind that seemingly wealthy, but terribly impoverished class of all, who have accumulated dross, but know not how to use it, or get rid of it, and thus have forged their own golden or silver fetters.” —Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

On Sunday, January 27, we did a day-long hike into two separate areas of Big Bend Ranch State Park. This picture was taken early in the first hike, before the sun got above the mountains and warmed us up. That's me on the left eating some olives, and new friend, Anita, on the right. After this trek, we returned to our vehicles and drove 20 miles west to begin our second hike. About 2/3 of the way into the second one, David and I called it done and decided to make shade with our denim shirts. We waited for our friends to finish the remainder of the hike. In a reversal of roles, I took a relaxing nap on the ground in the warm breeze while David kept watch for our friends to return. David is usually the napper.  It was a beautiful day.

Sounds like you had a very good day. A nap and hike are a good combination.
