I was seriously injured in a car crash on August 20. I’m told the first responders did not think I was going to survive. But I have (tough old geologist) and am now recuperating at home. But I’ll be pretty much out of action for another month or two. So much for the fall hiking season and, more regrettably, the fall field conference of the New Mexico Geological Society. I was much looking forward to it.
Fortunately, prognosis is for a full recovery. Hoping to be back on the trails by spring. Will report in here occasionally until then.
