and, i got out for my first real exercise since i think the 9th of this month - it felt great and harsh all at once. the flowers may be waning, but if conditions persist we may be up for some of the best fall colors in a few years!
conditions are dry - you can barely tell that it rained really hard just a couple of days before - the ground just soaked it all up.
creeping through the ferns being herded by Sally Dog in the Pain Sled. i'll sure miss her someday, i hope not soon, what a great companion!
