These trips to New York become so rushed, as I try to visit other friends at the ends of hikes. Even so, it's nice to see people even for short times. I was at Irene's house for 21 hours, and we slept some of them. Irene maintains a lot of miles of trail, so we went out to do some trail work yesterday afternoon. Here she is flipping some sticks off the trail.
Her dogs, Sandy and Pearl, are a little younger than Maggie was, but are also aging. It's so hard to see dogs get old. But they still love to cool off in any pond, and here they found a young friend to throw sticks.
Finally, I have a guessing game for you. These are baby birds. Not exactly the cutest ones on the block, but quite a common one. Who do you think nested on Irene's porch?
Tomorrow I'll start going through the days of the hike. Haven't even looked at all the pictures yet, myself!
