Dinner with Denali

  Today, I picked up Denali again, and am keeping her overnight. You know that people who hike 15-20 miles a day can eat! We made it a point to eat good stuff.

But first, I did walk a little way out to meet her on the trail. Although the day started cold, it was quite nice by afternoon. sunny sky

Anyway... she did all the hiker clean-up stuff, and we fixed... #1 Baked macaroni and cheese macaroni and cheese

#2 Fresh, local asparagus. The harvesting has just begun. asparagus

And then, there is the re-checking of the maps and making a plan for the next set of miles. hiker looking at maps

I'm going to hike with her tomorrow for about half the day.

In other news: I did editing and errands this morning, so I could go get Denali again. We've been talking more trail stuff!
