Wonderland update, Day 4

And lo, on the fourth day, there was much concern over the minor knee injury sustained on the prior afternoon (not, it should be noted, by Baxil). Discussion was had, and maps were consulted, and it was determined that discretion was the better part of valor, since we were at the last point from which the bail-out point involved (A) a flat walk (B) back to the car (rather than an uphill/downhill slog and a looooong hitchhike).

And so the adventuring party returned to the safety of a frontcountry campground (aided by a sympathetic park ranger with a little room in his truck). Our trip is not over, but we need a few days to assess the injury and determine how much more hiking is feasible.

Over 400 photos so far! I wasn't expecting the vistas to be so dramatic - somehow this is my first hike in the Pacific Northwest and I've never seen so many glacial canyons.

Why does this story sound familiar? Slightly different joint, slightly different person?

(From the hotel we have retreated to):

New funny story! So, we were switching drivers, in the parking lot of a skate park, and Bax was standing outside. He looks at his iPhone, and grins, and looks at us. "So ... guess who's already responded to my LJ post about The Accident?"

Leslie: "Uh ... Brian?"
Me (simultaneously): "[Your last name]?"
Bax (nods, starts to open mouth): "..."
Leslie: "...mentioning that other accident story he always tells, like every single time I see him?"
Bax: "...Correct in zero!"

Hey -- I'm predictable, at least. :-)

Besides, it is a fairly funny story.
