The weather was perfect. At the beginning, it was still quite wet from yesterday’s rain; we needed to watch those slippery roots on the path, but by the time we got to our lunch stop we could sit comfortably in the dry grass. Lots of raspberries along the way.
We did not see the bear that is apparently in the area, but that was probably its scat along the path.
It was great to have one of our guests identify some of the bird calls, especially the elusive Sora (Porzana carolina). There are obviously quite a few along this lake shore.
Thanks to Ilona for the notes and photos. You can view more photos on Flickr.
