|It's probably a good thing I still have a sprained ankle holding me back.|
I decided to try something new, and joined up with the Madison Couchcrash trip to Devils Lake. It's an odd transition to give up personal freedom and explore with a group (sitting passenger in a car, even!), but in exchange I met lots of fun people. Actually, it was Stefon back in Kentucky who suggested the Couchcrash, and we all hiked around the lake.
Okay, I hiked the steep, fun, climbing half of it, and then needed to rest and elevate my not-so-healed ankle while waiting for a car pickup. I've probably delayed healing a few more days...but it's worth it.
