I did a lot of picture taking as we hiked. We use a camera rather than a phone. I have not yet mastered selective down loading of pictures from the cell phone.
I must explain these pictures:
Above I was taking a picture of the broken stairs.
Here the tree hanging over the River.
And above the roots, below the rocks
At the end of our first attempt to hike the AT, we were actually back at Standing Indian where the idea was born. That is 100 miles from the beginning on Springer Mt. The hike had gone well, but we were tuckered. I turned to look back as we were crossing a small creek on a log just a foot off the water, and my Sherry was falling back into the water. She had gotten over balanced and the weight of the back back just took her down easy.
She just lay in the water laughing, we were so tired we were giddy! But I realized if I had been behind her I could have helped.
That has proven true at least one time where she got over balanced and headed head-first off the edge of a mountain. I did catch her by the ankles and saved her life. Actually I did not save her life but probably did prevent an injury, there were trees starting about 15 ft down that would have slowed her descent. Soooo my girl has accused me of loving to take pictures of her hinny.
Now I will admit methinks she has a pretty one, but I can prove I do take other shots, i.e.:
Girls notice, her hair is wind blown here. But she usually looks like she just left the hair dresser.
While in Alaska I heard the statement, if you are not the lead dog, the view never changes. WELL, My explanation makes sense to me, I hike behind a lot, therefore I see the ---- --- the most. Hey, I do not complain, ‘tis such a pretty view! (even as the second dog).
PS: Hey honey don’t throw stuff, I was just trying to explain…. OUCH!
We dated during a time I could look, but not touch! NOW, imma enjoying my girl and life. I love you Sweetheart… Hinny and all!
We saw this ‘39 Buick for sale somewhere in Maine.
