Central Ohio is probably not the best place to be located if you are trying to get in shape for hiking or backpacking somewhere with mountains. But I do have a favorite place to do as much as I can.

I know it’s been a long time since I last wrote here. I’m afraid the Muses have left me. However, I do want to at least do a summary wrap-up post with some observations about the interaction between my last trip Out West and barefootedness.
If you read all the entries, you’ll know that there were times that I donned footwear (even though I had really, really hoped not to resort to it). Here are some observations and realizations I acquired through that experience.
I’m still working on writing up my visit Out West this past June. (I keep getting interrupted by having to do other things.) As you may recall, last time my son and I were in Great Basin National Park, and we’d hiked to the Rock Glacier and the Bristlecone Pine Grove on the side of Wheeler Peak.
On June 27 it was time to ascend the peak itself.
Let me finish up writing about the hike at Yellowstone to Fairy Falls, Imperial and Spray Geysers, and Sentinel Meadows. This was on June 22nd.
By the way, I don’t usually break up hike descriptions into separate posts, but on a trip like this, some of the hikes generate so many pictures it makes sense to do so.
