Oh wind, rend open the heat

IMG_8562Hike 18 was on July 23. It was beyond gross. We headed back to the Zilmer Trail to celebrate Hike it Baby’s 3rd birthday with Hike On. We had intended to do the 3 mile loop at an adult pace. The above picture shows that clearly not working out. We ended up doing 2 miles. Kids were up, Kids were down, Kids were TANDEM! It was a free for all. Note to self: don’t tandem in that much heat. I almost passed out.

Total Mileage: 37.4

O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters.

Fruit cannot drop
through this thick air--
fruit cannot fall into heat
that presses up and blunts
the points of pears
and rounds the grapes.

Cut the heat--
plough through it,
turning it on either side
of your path. -Hilda Doolittle
