This photo belongs down at the ****** Sherry headed to find a lost POND.
I put an entry on this morning before our hike. It was a little rainy out, so I thought we might not do much. We are cutting back a little to about four miles of good trails and less on rough. This today was a good trail. WE started the climb to Mt. Washington. and turned back. Then we decided to try another approach.
This is before we turned back, I loved this natural bridge over a creek, and the
Creek itself demanded to be photographed, it was so clear Everything you see above, is under water.
This indicates today's theme. Trees and rocks (AGAIN? yep), I love the audacity of a tree to assume it will live on a Rock.
*******Pretend the first picture is here...Sherry on a bridge.
Looking back up at Mt. Washington, you might see one reason we turned back...
Another tree on a BIG rock
This guy grew between rocks.
You would thnk the rock grew, but this tree has hun on for about eighty years. pretty good for a tree, he may have fifty more years with those roots.
Here is one that was not so lucky, couldn't hack it on a rock.
WEll you will be happy we found the lost POND, I have been calling it a lake.
Sherry found a rock with her name on it, as she expresses it. A good look at the lake. So I decided to go over to this rock and get her picture.
I said look what is coming from behind that rock, she startled, because one time she had her feet soaking a Water Moccasin brushed by them. We were thrilled to see the lady duck.
Evidently we are not the only humans to find this lost pond. I know this wild duck has been fed by many hikers, she is just toooo friendly.
She even decided to sample Sherry's toes. I sorta like Sherry's toes myself.
Then another guy came up, He too, had found the Lost Pond. Ms. Duck is having nothing to do with him, but she didn't run either.
Now this was the surprise fo the day, our first Moose in New Hampshire. She isn't too afraid of hikers either
That was our day. A very interesting one. The Forest Service was glad to know that we had found the Lost Pond. Now they will rename it the Found POND. LOL
Thanks for coming by the Log.
Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, an elderly couple were told there would be a 45-minute wait for a table.
“Young man, we're both 90 years old,” the husband said. “We may not have 45 minutes.”
They were seated immediately.
The reason congressmen try so hard to get re-elected is that they would hate to have to make a living under the laws they've passed.
