driving to recovery

Another aspect to overcome on this road to recovery is building up my time behind the wheel.  The forecast for this morning was fabulous so I aimed for west, to the mountains, to a pretty place, to views with much meaning, to what would be a round trip of 190 kms.  Today's test drive destination was Forgetmenot Pond.  It was a picture perfect place to enjoy breakfast and the view.
There were two other reasons I aimed for this area.  
I wanted to eye two specific hiking objectives.  

One
Forgetmenot Ridge

It looked grand today just like I remember it to be. 

I have a dream for this Ridge.  After a trip up there last year, a friend and I discussed a plan for this summer which I have not forgotten.  My hope is to be able to live out this dream but it will take lots of work. 

Two 
Prairie Mountain

Looks like a star alignment for those up there this morning.

I was curious as to how I might feel seeing and being near this Mountain for the first time since my accident on it.  When I saw it, I thought what a lovely view, it looks so inviting, I will be back one day!

With the test drive complete and feeling no worse for wear, it's time to walk the talk, or should I say, hike the talk.
