It's the last of the snow piles melting on a 68 degree Sunday afternoon. Yes, 68 degrees on January 30th!! And this after weeks of the mercury in the thermometer hovering around 32. Needless to say, this was a weekend to get outdoors and enjoy the spring-like weather. I asked the dogs "Do you want to go for a hike?" and they exploded into two furry, dancing balls of "YES!!!"
The trail around the lake weaves through tunnels of rhododendron. The old-timers used to call these places "hells" because of the difficulty they caused when traveling. We are thankful someone has done the hard work for us in creating the trail.
What a great day for a hike!
|6 1/2 miles - not bad for an old guy!|
