Sounds like you had a nice safe trip and were nice to all your body parts.........
that is a very good thing !! That may days w/o the first aid kit is so sweet.

Will look forward to your pictures after you relax and enjoy the comforts of "Town life"
for a few days and get used to walking on smooth flat ground again.

All those miles these two years, are those hiking boots getting thin on the bottom ?

Can't wait. Your journeys and photos always encourage me to get off my butt and wake up at stupid early hours to get out there into the Sierras.

This is always one of the best posts of the year - looking forward to it, especially the photos of country most will never experience.
