While we were eating our hamburgers in Mesick yesterday after our hike, another man came in with a backpack. It turns out he's also beginning a hike of the North Country Trail. His trail name is Sir Dickspatcher. A couple of us talked with him for quite a long time.
And I just want to share a couple more pictures from yesterday. This is the "pond," a lake really, formed by the Hodenpyl Dam where we began our walk. We walked away from the water, although we've hiked beside it some times. This view isn't from the trail, but from a roadside rest area.
This is a really funny burl. Looks like the tree decided to try to grow a crop of potatoes.
Today has been more normal. I wrote in the morning and then worked on various projects and jobs all afternoon. Walked to the post office and bank. There really need to be some more normal days here, but the next two aren't going to qualify!
