Annual Presidents' Day Hike



This year, on a co-worker's recommendation (and with her directions), headed over to the Dale Ball South trail by the Audubon Center, via the store closing store at Borders.

Up and up and over: 29 to 30; a little jog up 32, but returned via the loop at 31; nothing level. Sunny, but still cool, but the terrain alternately had me in sun or shade, sweating or slipping on snow. Just shy of an hour-and-a-half.

The traditional posed portrait here; the treats got her in front of the camera, but not facing it.

I like this tradition. This also happens to be one of our favorite hikes; not too strenuous. Good to see Cheyenne hiking it, too, that means there is hope for Walter and Jeff.

Cheyenne, you give her a trail and she just goes. Doubling back, as we did on this loop, she might stop to sniff and poke around like a dog. But with a path in front of her, she just drives on, disdainful of the monkeys attached to her who half to stop and breathe and drink water and stuff.
