We were exploring the Natchez Trail and decided to take the dogs on a small hike from the parking area at the Memorizl of the War of 1812. It was about a 40 min drive from the campground to get to the northern terminus of of the Trace. The memorial inscription stated that the trace […]
Took the Lilly out after work to hike to Dibble’s Quarry in the Catskills Mountain to check on the beaver dam. No new beaver moved in yet and the dam has a big hole in it. It felt good to hike in the mountains again, feel the cold air, and climb up some inclines.

It was a bit warm for Hunter and he as dragging in the sun so we took […]
