Kiva – Toenail
Two of the three times I have backpacked across the Grand Canyon — I have gotten a bruised, purpuric toenail from the steep downhill on the North Kaibab trail. The first time was when I painted this one — on the left index toe. The bottom picture is the most recent example — on the right middle toe this time. I have learned to clip my toenails very close the night before the descent. Purple Heart US stamp…… : )
