As you can see in the photo, Lakin’s left arm is in a sling because he fractured it while snowboarding up in Flagstaff. When we saw him two weeks ago, his left wrist was in a cast from a skateboarding fall and he had just gotten the cast off before the shoulder injury. He is a sweet guy.
I thought this was a nice view of the trail and the Superstition Mountains off to the east.
The Desert Poppies are starting to bloom.
