A Sort of a Hike

 
Tomorrow I'm leading a hike at Sheep Ranch Pathway near Baldwin. I haven't been there for a while, so I like to make sure things haven't changed before I go leading a group into the woods.

Whoa! These trails are not in good shape, and I couldn't even figure out one of the junctions from either direction, and another whole piece is a complete mess under big trees that probably came down in the winds last fall.

Sue hiked with me, and my two favorite little doggies, Sophie and Anabelle.

We had a treat! After such a late spring, now summer things seem to be ripening with astonishing speed. We found wild blueberries that were ripe.

And the water lilies on Little Leverentz Lake were perky.

So, I do have a route we can follow tomorrow, but it's not what I planned on paper. Good thing I checked it out ahead of time.

And I got to see Sue, and get a doggie fix!

In other news: I wrote in the morning, and then I was going to go hiking, but realized if I waited till she got off work, Sue could probably go too. She said yes, so I spent the afternoon working on the trailer. I'll share that another day.
