As I mentioned before the break, our family and several others ventured north to Independence, CA to celebrate the holiday. We ate heartily. Drank freely. And hiked past 10,000 feet.
I even enjoyed a 7.4 second dip in Pothole Lake, a snow-fed pond of spiny cold water
that will turn a grown man into a shrieking 7 year old girl.
Also had the displeasure of running into this imbecile. I don't know what holiday she was celebrating, but it wasn't the one we were sharing. I also don't know what it said on her cap, but I'm pretty sure it was something to the effect of: Not Just Ignorant. Proud.
