Today was the monthly hike for the Spirit of the Woods trail club. I was actually able to go on this one. In fact, I was the leader. Not that that's such a big deal. Anyway, 10 people showed up, but we didn't manage a group picture.
Love how the trail just calls to me here.
The youngest and oldest hikers slowed down enough for me to snap a picture.
I love hemlocks. They are among my favorite trees. This clump was looking nice.
And the occasional wise old white pine might have interesting stories to tell.
A stick covered in orange lichen and snow provides a bright spot in the woods.
Finally, you've probably heard of Burl Ives. However, I'd like to introduce you to Burl Eagle. I think he's related to the family in the link below.
And... I have something really neat to show you tomorrow. I'll give it a post of its own.
Miles hiked today: 8.5 in under 3 hours, and I was the last one in (I like to stop and take pictures, eh?)
Hike 100 Challenge is at 95.5 miles. One more little hike to do this month for me.
There is no other news, except that I ate too much.
North Country Trail, Freesoil Trailhead south to 5 Mile Rd and back, 8.5 miles
