First hike of year

Monday was the first hike of the year, and it was a beautiful day for it. We did the easy side of the Holland Creek Trail until it became too icy, and then we went to the Hermit trails in Chemainus, where the paths were free of snow and ice.
Unfotunately, I managed to fall on the only ice we saw, and have injured my right upper arm.  And yes, I'm right handed, and the arm is currently useless. So I'm typing this with one finger of my left hand to let you know I won't be able to blog for a while. Or email, or do facebook. Could be a couple of weeks, could be a couple of months - extent and exact nature of damage still not determined.
So this one photo will have to last you for a while - from along the trail shortly before I fell.

Sorry to hear of your fall, not a great start to the new year. I hope you get better soon.

Jean, I'm so sorry to hear of your injury, I hope that you haven't broken anything, although a bad sprain or torn ligament can be just as bad. Hopefully, your arm heals quickly so you can be free to do what you want at home and away. I'm sure this will interfere with your driving as well, best wishes on a speedy recovery.

Hope this heals fast and that you learn to use your left hand really fast. Take good care of yourself and please tell Mitzi and Allie to be understanding
