The sun showed up in the late afternoon, making every little wetland spectactular
A bit gruesome, but interesting- a contorted deer skeleton in the creek that is still holding together. It looks as if it belongs in some sort of fantasy game.
Just one more picture of a happy hiker, Denali. She's miles beyond here now.
Today, I did some trail work. On one section of our trail, someone had taken dark blue spray paint and just made huge blobby messes on way too many trees.
Andrea went with me, and we started scraping those off and painting new, correct blazes. We only got about a half mile done, but we'll be back. This is the section that was such a mess last winter.
In other news: I did editing, and worked on the Newaygo County Data Book.
North Country Trail, Lake County, MI, 5 Mile Road north and back doing trail work, about 2 miles
