When Opportunity Knocks...

...Open the door.

I was going to do a really mellow hike/run after work today but when my friend Dan came into my work about an hour before I got off and offered to shuttle his car so we could do a point to point ridge run all it took was one look outside at the high clouds to decide to join him. Turns out I made the right decision:



At the top of the ridge we found a bottle of beer, unopened, that someone had likely left up there while skiing in the winter. We didn't let that opportunity slide either:






When we got back to Dan's car his battery was dead. Luckily someone had left a van parked next to us, with the keys in it... and we had jumper cables. Sweet.

One of these days soon I'm going to rest a bit. Maybe.
