Welcome back to the Pacific Northwest after our rambles through Greece. Thor and I are looking forward to a return trip to the Greek islands — some new ones to explore! — this fall, but meanwhile we’ll share some of our other rambles. This winter was a tough one on various fronts, including more-than-Biblical straight days of gray, cold rain, some extended-family challenges, and Thor’s recovery from spinal surgery. His stenosis was treated, but it’s a long haul to regrow the nerves that control his right calf muscles. (He has a REALLY long leg, and the nerves grow only about 2-3 mm. per day). Our usual hiking has been restricted, but when the sun finally broke through in May, and Mt. Baker was glowing so beautifully on the horizon, we just had to dig out the snowshoes to give it a go. Wearing a special orthotic device, Thor discovered that snowshoeing used different muscles than walking, so we happily headed up past the now-closed ski area, toward Artist Point on the shoulders of Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker.
