12.5 for a Total of 57 Miles

Today went quickly. It was warmer, but not uncomfortably so. There wasn't as much of interest to look at, so I just have a few pictures.

We did have one interesting people interaction. More on that tomorrow. But the people we met took a picture of us.

The best wildlife picture was a pack of turkey vultures. Not terribly scenic. They were guarding something run over by a soybean harvester.

The house of the day is a barn. Nicely kept up, but you can tell it's old. Look at the slate roof.

Finally... just for a chuckle. These arrows were painted on the roads quite frequently. Something to do with underground lines. But it could just as easily be the hiker's dream for the end of the day- turn it 90 degrees... a wine bottle and a roof.

We are now back at Ester's. It started pouring about an hour ago, so we snuck this hike into a perfect weather slot.

All of Northern Ohio on the Buckeye Trail is complete. All I have left to do are 60 miles in the southeast. Those will be hiked in the spring. Tomorrow it's back to work.

Well done, Sharkey! Love the pix and the interpretation of the symbols.

Good job. Got a good chuckle over the arrow.

Vultures? I describe them as big, ugly, and useful. Adjectives which could apply to many things, most of them man-made.
