10/5/17 DeMeritt Forest

Sunny and mid-sixties - ideal weather for a walk in the woods. We hadn't been here in awhile - partly because the small streams have all been dry.

Color still a long way from peak

but not for this tree

In spite of no water in a stream this morning Kelley went down to the dry stream bed and just laid on the cool ground - I missed a picture.

She is rarely interested in the water I carry for her but was today.

After a loop in the woods we went down and across the road to the Stillwater. There is a cove off the river that today was reduced to a pond because of the low water.

Kelley went in anyway and had a hard time with the deep mud. I was afraid I was going to be in the mud to get her out but she finally got turned around and out.

Then to the river to get cleaned off

Even the large river was low.

More bathing

Kelley did well and we got almost an hour and a half of exercise.
