A walk up the Canyon



Beautiful day after two days of snow... bitter cold this morning (relatively speaking, not like up in Tronna, but cold for here) but by this afternoon the sun was out and the temp had begun to rise. Céilidh and I took a 6-mile hike up City Creek Canyon in the sun, and it was a beautiful walk.

Dealing with a little stiffness in my knee (I've been a bit lax in taking my glucosamine, and am paying the price). Just put some Therapeutic Mineral Ice™ on it, and it's feeling better. Sort of like Habanero for the skin... it has a nice scent and makes things feel really good for a while. Unlike Heet, which stinks, and - when applied to *cough* certain areas by a gang of locker-room thugs - burns like Hell. Et je m'y connais...

Deeeep Heeeeeat..... stinks but warms.
Tiger Balm leaves suspicious off yellow streaks on clothing....

Glucosamine can be applied through a cordial called "Joint Juice" (yes, really)... Got it for Mum, but were lax in applying, not that she was over mobile other than stand UP, sit DOWN and swivel ROUND.

Never tried tiger balm. Heet does work well, and I think I only ever had my *ahem* painted once, so I'm not too traumatized to use it. It's just the overwhelming pungency doesn't go over well outside of the gym... I may look into that Joint Juice, although I have access to the best formulation made which does really well when I'm disciplined enough to take it regularly.

Lovely picture, my feet are cold and damp looking at it.

And I can almost smell that fresh, clean, chill air.....

Oh for strong contrasts and high uv content ...

Boots! Boots! They're good for your feet,
The more you walk, the less you eat...

Feets warm and dry, this pair has probably 1000 miles or more on it and still going strong... REI is my store of choice, they stock the good stuff and even have good sales.

I have a pair of size12 hikers I used to wear camping, a pair of Parkers Steel toed boots (£15) and a couple of pairs of steel toed safety shoes, one much tattier than the other.
I may not get a company car but by Dr Marten's Airy Wear I can order Company Footwear. And I DO.
