Hueco Season Cooked

Well, temps hit 100 yesterday. The southwest summer is here and Hueco is cooked to a crisp. The season was fun as always but ticks weren’t outrageous this time around. I set some pretty high goals for myself, perhaps too high? (i.e. Bloody Flapper Traverse – vNINE! What was I thinking?!). And Paul was fighting some severe elbow/forearm tendonitis. The good news, for me anyway, is that I can tell I am stronger now overall as a result of the season and all the training that came along with it. I took a couple weeks off after our last Hueco trip (mainly to loathe in my own self-pity over Bloody Flapper Trvs). And then went back to the woody and put in an impressive campusing session. Maybe I too, like Paul, just need some rest.

Here are some photos wrapping up the Hueco season with our dear friends from Pittsburgh: Jen, Brian and their kids Seb and Oren.
