The west end of the trail is paved. Just beyond where the pavement ends
(eastbound), a tree had fallen over the trail. I tried to go around it on the
downhill side. There I fell down.
Nothing broken. But my left hand was all scratched and bleeding. After I
got home, my wife saw that my right leg below the knee was the same way.
It was hard getting up. The other Trailblazers tried to help me, then one of
them flagged down a father and his grown-up son, who got me up.
The hike was over. Drove from the trailhead back to Mesa with the tire
warning light on. Made it fine.
Thanks to Diane, Laura, and Heather for hiking with me!
Sorry the hike ended the way it did. I had so much to show you!
