It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...

If It's Sunday, It Must Be Memorial Day

I went on a major hike (for me!) to find a puzzle geocache that I had solved over a year ago.  It has been preying on my mind!

As I was walking along a dirt road I encountered two large dogs, huskies.  At first I thought they were coyotes, then I thought they might be wild dogs, but they had collars and eventually their mistress came along, with a third husky, and we had a conversation about dogs and walking and coyotes.

There were many wildflowers about.  I saw this one.  I shan't try to name it.

A view of a body of water.  It was a cloudy day, which made for pleasant walking.  Unfortunately I had decided to wear my heavy coat with hood, because of the intermittent drizzle.  I was sweating like a pig.

Where's the heavy jacket w/hood?  I took it off at this cache/rest stop to try to dry off a bit.

A kayaker on the large body of water.  Not too many boats out today.  I probably saw seven the whole time.

This cheap Walmart bike with a VERY rusted chain was sitting not all that far from the end of the "trial".  I can't imagine someone rode it there.  I could barely walk it!  The tires still had air!

A panorama of the view from Fletcher Point.  Not quite 360 degrees, more like 180, maybe.

Old Glory waves in the breeze.

I walked around 6.5 miles on the main route, and some piddly amounts here and there in other places.  I found seven geocaches, and didn't find one.

It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but it was still quite a walk.
