FLT Hiking - Masonville to Shear Rd

Our last day of hiking was Sunday, and we only had 6.7 miles to walk. I had planned a little longer, but parking the car at the place I had chosen to end was not very good, and it was a really hilly day, so we settled for the shorter distance. Pictures like the first one are always fun.

We just thought the understory beneath these pines was frothy and pretty.


Finally, just a cutie for Lin!

Today, we shopped for lumber and hardware for new clothesline poles, and after lunch went for a little hike at Esopus Nature Preserve. We saw two lovely rat snakes (completely harmless). I'm tired. See you tomorrow!

Oops, haa, I meant " maybe." Goodness, my typos are bad tonight! Anyway, I'm not working Monday & Tuesday next week. Since you're in NY, it would be cool to meet. Of course, I know how tight a travel schedule can be, so no worries if you can't make it on such short notice.

I like the shadow shot, and that second is very cool

"lovely" and "snake" There is a dissonance there. Can't quite put my finger on it. NO! Won't put my finger on it.

Love the photo of the pine trees and the greenery beneath.

The frog might be cute but snakes do NOT appeal to me at all.
