Green Rock Trail proves challenging
W and M continued training for the big Philmont expedition today, logging 10 miles with full backpacks on the Green Rock Trail, a fairly hilly trail that fortunately was shady. M discovered that his feet had grown again, and his almost brand new boots may have to be replaced, unless W can wear them. W walked for the first time with a knee brace, as he experimented to see if it might reduce the likelihood of knee pain on downhill grades. Knee pain was reduced, but still significant.
