Took A Tumble


So my joyride has come to an end in Bishop. I went biking too fast and too riskily one too many times (maybe newfound bravery after climbing Forrester?) and I took a tumble last night. I flew over the handlebars and landed on my tailbone and bruised and scraped myself up pretty badly. Some wonderful hikers took really good care of me and carried me home and bandaged me up and now I’m sleeping on my stomach for a while and walking really slowly tomorrow. One shoulder blade and half a buttcheek is smeared on the road somewhere, haha, but the rest of me is intact and nothing is broken. I’m so lucky this didn’t end up any worse, and I do think that I’ll be able to get back to hiking in a few days!

About elinatravels

I’m Elina Oliferovskiy, a Russian-born 27-year-old restless soul who’s never really found a place to dig her roots in deep ever since I moved to the United States in 1998. I move every year or two, backpack for months at a time, and occasionally live and travel in a motorhome--and I (usually) love every minute of my (somewhat) nomadic lifestyle. Feel free to follow along on my journey by reading my blog!
