6.9 miles and 1244' gain this morning, walking my dog, along with a real nice 30-something couple. They dropped off their kiddos at school and met me at the trailhead.
Such a nice morning!
Good workout too.
Hey! Who are those people following us up the hill?
Rising sun still behind the ridge:
We hiked to the top of a very cool earthen dam at an old mine site just out of town. Then wandered around for a bit, high up above town and then down, down, down. Averaged a little better than 3 mph, which is pretty good coping with a somewhat crazed bird dog.
Good hike. I've been getting out a lot. Posting a little.
