Saturday morning. The annual pilgrimage up Black Mountain to prove I haven’t  yet reached that dreaded old-old category and, furthermore, do not intend to permit myself to be so labeled until I am 95. Black Mountain. My benchmark…totem…20-year-goalpost. Black Mountain, so not-Everest, so just right for me. (4.33 miles/16% incline)

  1. OK, Marj, now you have done it! This proves you actually can do some of our more “moderate” hikes! You are definitely NOT off the hook on this! Glad you are having a wonderful time.

  2. I just watched the movie “Nostalgia”. I can’t get over how much you look like Ellen Burstyn. Try to watch it if you can.

  3. I fully expect to see you doing the same thing when you are 95. Not me….I will be someplace in northern Italy up a hill overlooking a vineyard and drinking a little too much wine and loving it. There is something about reaching a crest and sitting down and looking out. There was such a very special view on the road from Santa Fe to Taos, the High Road, that I stopped at. It was the kind of place you want to sit on a bench (there was none) and drink some coffee (there was none) and just savor in the view…
