I always like to try something new on my birthday.
So this year, Em and I took the ferry out to Avalon
and set off on the Trans-Catalina Trail. We spent two
nights camping, first near Avalon and then on the
windward side of the isle at Little Harbor.
Three years earlier, when we hiked up Whitney, we were
about evenly paired: I had trained for months and Em
had not trained at all. Three years hence, I was a drag
on Em's performance. Tempus fugit.
