I'm not at home this weekend, where there is a treadmill in the air-conditioned basement, so I went walking/jogging (shock and awe) outside yesterday. Which, considering it's really the first time I've done so, was not the smartest thing to do on the second-hottest day of the year in the midst of a heat wave (it was probably between 90-95*F out, at 6 in the afternoon), but I digress. Despite being fairly certain I was about to collapse, I picked up a 24oz takeaway cup, lid, and straw that was laying on the ground and walked back half a block to toss it in a bin. So, uh, reminder: do that in the future.

In a related story, it is still ridiculously hot. I think it went up to 102* today? Don't know what the humidity was, but we're near water, so I'm pretty sure it was insane.

Yesterday I went with a few friends to a state park we frequent. Having spent part of my professional career (as a shovel monkey) tromping through woods that aren't really hiking-friendly with a ton of heavy gear (and occasionally breaking for lunch too close to nests of ground bees), marked trails and picnic tables amuse me.

Unfortunately I hadn't been up there in a while, and not since reading too many books on the subject and becoming hyper-aware of the garbage and plastic problem. Which you get a lot of in a busy hiking area on a nice day in June.

Note to self: Bring garbage bags next time to pick stuff up with. Or at least take pictures of the Coors can that was at the bottom of this particular waterfall.
