Geez Tony, they got you for sure.  In the mountains we get a combination of all sorts of bitey bugs in the summer, I seen many folks with limbs that look like yours in the summer time. Some years better that others, I guess that is a price we pay for by loving nature and being in it. Tough part I think is don't scratch...leave them or they really itch.

Looks like chicken pox. Lol.

This is only parts of my body.

Yes. The tough part is not to scratch. At the same time it’s the only thing that helps - to not scratch.

Dear Tony:
Exactly correct... but sometimes very difficult to do.
The price of enjoying the great outdoors in the summer months.   
I have the same issues with biting bugs here in Alaska.

Thank you for sharing your adventures.

Those darn bugs do drive itch factor, however the worse which is where maybe I got some of my ability to not scratch those bites was a round of chicken pox as you related the look too Tony, it was earlier in my life where I could not touch them. That was the absolute worst jeepers, I had calamine lotion all over and it just barely helped.

I used to do a lot of tramping up to lookouts as we live near a large mountain range but I just don't care for it anymore.

Went hiking today. 12 km. It was very various landscape and trail. Had to watch carefully where I put my feet. I did it all solo. Nobody wanted to/could join me.

First bits were in the forest. And 2/3 of the remaining trail was by the coast. The ocean was calm today. But the wind made it hard to feel how hot the sun was. I burned my neck and face. Oh well.




This first pic is when I have about 5 km left. I sit and wonder what the hell I’ve dragged myself into this time. Very steep climbs over rocks. Almost killed me.
 


These are some of the rocks on this trail.





But the prize you get when you get on top of the mountain is breathtaking.
 





And a picture from the forest. The trees are old and very tall.

This stretching movement is my favorite one to prevent leg injury or cramp before going out for running or hiking. Repeat 20 times for each leg. After a full-course marathon, this movement will relax your leg muscle immediately. For long-distance hiking, this will also help.

It is difficult to stretch out your knees fully first, but after practicing several times, anybody can do it. I knew it when I was learning a martial art about 30 years ago. It has helped me prevent leg injury ever since I started running in 2003.

Today, Sunday, I hiked to the top of the highest mountain in S. Korea. It is very close to my house.

There were many climbers.

It took about 6 hours, but for ordinary people, it takes about 9 hours. I drank 4 bottles of water (a total of 2 kg), as the air temperature was not so high because it is still the Monsoon season here.

The rocks are called the 'crown' ridge. It is near the top.

 
There are two bridges.

Cheers!

Love it Barbie!

How do you climb/hike with a mask? Doesn’t it get hard or heavy to breathe?

Tony, it looks like your hiking in my home, i.e. Maine. Where were/are you?

Barb, your country is beautiful. I love those bridges!

Yes, I was going to say similar. My understanding is that you should not wear a mask while exercising. Also, that it is far less likely that you would catch Coronavirus outdoors.

Of course, what you decide to do is up to you...

The mask is opened in the nose and mouth area. Just another layer attached to cover the area. No problem in breathing.

Not the entire country. My home is an UNESCO designated area (World Natural Heritage Site), protected and reserved by special law, which strictly prohibits any development. Yes. It is relatively pristine in the mountain above 400-m altitude.

Today I hiked twice.

First I hiked to a small mountain.



On the top, I could see the peak I hiked to last week. The highest peak in the center is it (altitude 1950 m).



I hiked to another peak shown in the right side of the above photo today (altitude 1700 m).



It was foggy and windy at the top of the peak. The temperature was like a fall. There were a lot of hikers including children.







The flowers are of wild hydrangea.

Hopefully, my body weight will decrease by 1 kg (2.2 lbs) tomorrow  :D :D

The Monsoon ended, and heatwaves will come next week.
