Lyme Disease takes a break

Those wicked spirochetes took the day off (perhaps they tuckered themselves out yesterday) and we were able to hike the Willey Range today. We started in Crawford North and hiked up the Avalon Trail to Field, then over to Willey, back to Field and then over to Mount Tom.

This was the hike on November 1st that sent me in search of a diagnosis and subsequent treatment for Lyme Disease. On that day I couldn't hike more than 1.8 miles before having to turn around. Today we completed the 10-mile loop with0ut much trouble and were charmed by the return of winter.

Tomorrow, we have a trip to Garfield planned on what is supposed to be a beautifully sunny but windy days.

As of today, our total stands at nine peaks.

What an incredible picture of Atticus. And, how wonderful for you that you were able to completed the 10-mile loop!
