Baldy and The Commute

Got a hike in with LP and RH last weekend on Mt. Baldy. There was a bit of snow, but all in all, it was a very pleasant hike. And the weather was great for this time of year - visibility was at least 75 miles at points, and wind was relatively calm. LP really has a great eye with the camera - the pictures he took came out great. Ends up that unfortunately I pulled my left calf and have been limping for 3 days - should be healed by tomorrow.

Also, just wanted to post some statistics about my commute.
Distance:
It is 54 total miles per day, riding the train for 40 of those miles.
Cost:
Subsidized train cost is $1.10 per day, and driving is (According to AAA)$0.57/mi *14mi = $8. Total cost is $9.10/day, $45.50/week.
Time:
Commute time is 2 hrs per day, 10 hrs per week incl. a 30 min walking per day. Commute speed: 27 MPH avg.

I'm hoping to do a White Mountain hike in the coming months - that is above 14,000. Perhaps there will be time this summer to try Williamson-Tyndall.
