I have personally suffered four elbow tendon tears in four years. So, naturally, I will have health and fitness at the top of this page, and you can be sure I'll have a few articles on joint and Tendon problems listed.

Old Wyoming homestead, southwest of Laramie, right after a brief but harsh winter snowstorm I'm a wanna-be but far from it photographer too, so check out the photo section if you want to improve those disappointing pictures at the crag.
