I had to work today. Mice, y'know? The fight against cancer must go on and all that.
Anyway, since I was going into the lab I figured I'd bring Kim with me so that afterwards she could hike along Morgan Creek with me. It's one of my favorite hikes and it's just a mile from where I work in Chapel Hill.
I guess when I told her about the hike I forgot to mention the long walks across sewage pipes. As you can see in the picture above, at first she was slightly reluctant to make the crossing.
In time she grew to love the spirit of adventure that crossing the slippery---it was below freezing today so there was a lot of ice on the streams and some on the pipes---sewer pipes entailed. In fact she told me that it'd be a cold day in hell before she ever did that again. And it's going to be pretty cold tomorrow too so I think she was angling for another invite.
Waiting for her train to arrive
