Heading Towards Home

As of yesterday, I felt vastly better than a week prior (see my concussion log) and so I decided to head towards home (from Flagstaff, AZ). See my concussion recovery phase 3 entries for April 14/15/16.

I learned yesterday April 15 that driving is cognitively demanding. After having rested a week, just 2.5 hours of driving took a toll, even as cycling leaves me with more energy. See my log for details on why this might be so.

I started doing some shooting “real” again today (with gear I am reviewing, but iPhone panorama mode is hard to beat for convenience). I plan on doing so each day of the trip. Shooting is tough because of very high winds (gusting to 40 mph or so).

Update: the fierce winds made driving extremely difficult and raised a huge amount of dust near Pipe Spring National Monument. I retreated back to the Kaibab National Forest, to try again tomorrow.

Below, looking back towards the Vermillion Cliffs / Lees Ferry area in far distance. I camped off Hwy 89A in one of the many side roads—no charge. European travelers take note of the free camping.
