...I am losing both of my big toenails.

Again. Sigh.

This time it's from a hike back in June, when Mark and I hiked Eagle Creek with our friends Liberty and Jason.

Mark and Jason hiked to Punchbowl Falls and back. They relaxed and read back at the car while Liberty and I hustled all the way to Tunnel Falls and back.

Whew! Twelve miles roundtrip at a fast clip. I loved every minute of it.

I felt my toenails catch inside my boots when Liberty and I were hiking downhill.

Sure enough, last week my big toenails were both halfway off.

It doesn't hurt, although it sure isn't pretty.

And you know what? I'd do that hike again in a heartbeat, toenails or no.

We'll love you with or without toenails. :)

Ha Ha! Perfect comment, Polly. I agree with her, too...but keep your socks on, okay? :) PS...they'll grow back. Again.
