Green Peace

With Maggie gone, my double job work schedule, fast trips and what not, I haven't been going on many hikes. But tomorrow I am leading the monthly club hike, and I wanted to make sure the trail was clear and that I remembered all the turns.

Went to Bowman Lake and did the loop, fast. But even so, it was a lovely time. First the lake.

Then you take a trail up the west side of a ridge.

And come back down the other side on the North Country Trail. Bowman Lake is a glacial kettle hole, and there are two other dry holes to the north of it. They are both interesting ecosystems, and have remained open at the bottom even though they don't have water in them. This is looking down into one.

But I liked the time of day (early evening), and how green everything looked. Peaceful. I needed that.

I think I have missed Maggie's passing away, so sorry to hear about that. I guess, I have not been here for a long time. :( Anyway, that first picture of the lake is so serene and beautiful. And yes, I like how green everything look.

So that your friends can hike the trail once you walk it twice. You are a princess!

Sharp and serene.

I know you must really miss Maggie when you are out on these lone hikes. Will you ever have another dog?
