Leaf strewn trail

Another section of trail - I think the bike people build these bridges

Yhis memorial is in a field all by itself.

Unknown weeds

Black Pond

  • Kelley did well today, though she slowed a little near the end. This was a little over an hour and that seems to be the right amount for her now.


  1. You look like your having a very strange fall--I remember colors that could almost blind you and now it looks, as you said, they are just falling to the ground--the leaf peepers will be disappointed. Sicily was a bit disappointing, pretty countryside but not much there and the cities were very crowded with all kinds of tourist stuff. I really enjoyed a hike around Mt. Etna, very interesting to see the lava flows from a few years old to much older. They say they have a way now to direct the flows in the future--I wouldn't want to be the 2nd test of this concept--it worked the last time, BUT.

    1. Yes, fall colors are subdued this year- have read it is because of warmer than normal fall temps. Sorry Sicily was also disappointing - I wouldn't be interested in the test either
