How did my legs get cut up? I love to hike, but hiking doesn’t always love me. The below picture is evidence of that. You’d think I’d been hiking for a week or more with legs that cut up, but no. Just 3 days. And, that’s three days with overnight stays in huts, not in a tent. I love hiking, but hiking doesn’t always love me back. Falling, crawling, and scrambling is usually involved. And sometimes, things happen to my legs and I don’t even realize it. Not sure where all the cuts came from in this picture, but I do remember the bruises. I slipped a couple of times while crawling across slick granite in the pouring rain.
There is a definite change in skin tone where my sock line ends. That’s dirt. Not a tan. And yes, before I do any hut hikes, I always get a pedicure and this one held up pretty well. I hope you have fun with this creativity prompt.
