Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Instagram Posts for the Week of Feb. 27

Looking Down on Lone Pine
I find that I post more freely on Instagram. Probably because I don't feel the need to come up with a substantial piece of writing to go with the photo. So I thought I'd try wrangling up my IG posts of the week into one post here on the blog. So without further adieu...
Looking east from the Tuttle Creek Ashram on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevadas and Mount Whitney. In the valley below is Lone Pine, and the mountains ahead are the Inyo mountains. An easy hike to the Ashram, which has an interesting history of it's own.

Ashram from afar
 The aforementioned Tuttle Creek Ashram. First pictures on the site (with my friendly trail guides) and from across the valley. The location was important to a resident "scientist" as it was close to both Mt. Whitney and Lone Pine Peak which was thought to be a powerful area.

Tuttle Creek Falls for #waterfallwednesday
Not sure of the official name (if there is one) but since this seems to be off of Tuttle Creek , I hereby name these the Tuttle Creek Falls, as viewed from the Tuttle Creek Ashram. This started a long hike to get to the top of these falls.
