Akuura, my Hiking Buddy, and I chose the Ridge Trail as a pre-Christmas route, following a wide loop path, which ended being close to three miles-a fairly easy but vigorous workout. The Ridge in question would have taken us another forty minutes to get to the top-and thus remains a goal for future efforts.
As it was, we got at least one fine view of the great formations to the east and north.
After our loop, Airport Mesa called-with its Mesa Grill providing a fine repast, as always, and the views from the Mesa top offering a different sort of dessert.
Ridges, loop trails and sweeping viewpoints also happen in other aspects of life. The afternoon came and went, with no word on the work situation for next semester. Since I have a Plan B, there is not a whole lot of upset on this end. The main thing is that the students get the best possible teacher, given the circumstances.
More immediately, tomorrow will find me on a relatively brief visit to Hopi, to deliver a gift from a hospitalized former student to his wife. The spirit of Christmas will allow for no less.
A beautiful hike with a like minded friend – always a blessing. I hope there is a work decision made sooner rather than later so you can make plans to work or find an alternative plan… Glad you can be an “angel” for someone!! Merry Christmas Gary!!

The right thing will happen, with regard to work. Usually, the person who needs the job the most is who ends up getting it. I will know by Tuesday evening. Merry Christmas, Val and Sparky!
