A Hike up West Ridge Trail, Nicene Marks State Park

My goal was to get out during this short break between storms and test my left psoas. I'd done some pointed electric massage work on it that past 2 days and it was feeling OK just walking around. Maybe I was good for a long hike?? If not, at least I'd have an active situation come Monday's visit with the orthopedist to help with the diagnosis. As it turned out, I got almost to the power lines before hip psoas became inflammed, and the hike back down was painful. So, not really much progress to report.
