In honor of his broken leg, here’s a link to a woman who broke hers on a trail in Corsica, possibly monkey-wrenching her plans to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail next summer.

In August, I was hiking with my husband and some of his French family in the mountains in Corsica, France when I slipped. For those of you not familiar with Corsica, it’s an incredibly beautiful ROCKY little island south of Nice. Long and short, my boot caught on a rock; I kept going and my ankle did not. Pop!

The French have excellent medical care, by the way.
