Saturday Oct 10 #


With Beth & W. Had not walked the dike before, she had. Long enough and certainly straight. The view makes a difference - midway and the last of it

Fine fall day anyway one looks at it.

Walking (Nordic walking) 44:06 [1] 1.25 mi (35:16 / mi) +51m 31:18 / mi

Back to yesterday's walk - left W's leash behind somewhere and found it on the log where we paused for a rest. Perfect October PM - yesterday's wind had moved on. Willow playing coy at end of the walk. Had to put the leash on to get her in the back of the car - same as at home. She loves where the car takes her but for some reason not the car.

Walking 15 [3]

Putney Pond

Scary for a dog

perhaps Waiting for Godot

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder


Colors just tumble out of the trees...
1, 2 on early evening ride, Dunbarton.
And, a dirty yellow color.


For years, I've thought having a pet tarantula would be most interesting but haven't put words into action. Milk snakes, rat snakes and garter snakes were "pets" as a youngster. The only critters to bite me were pet mice, wild ones that we amused ourselves with some winters past, eg. "bashful mouse" which is why I have the picture.

Walking (Nordic walking) 58:09 [1] 1.43 mi (40:40 / mi) +47m 36:54 / mi

Rookery and Hemlock Trails, fine but windy fall day. Good companionship.

Walking (Nordic walking) 38:08 [1] 1.09 mi (34:50 / mi) +21m 32:52 / mi

Not expecting much other than fall immersion - colors, leafy carpet, some fragrance, crickets singing a fall requiem. This corner of Nottingcook has changed very little in 13-14 years as the canopy won't allow secondary growth. Could see 100-150m in some directions. On the other hand, entrance and exit are choked with quick-grow white pine.

Walking (Nordic walking) 53:30 [1] 1.56 mi (34:17 / mi) +15m 33:18 / mi

Nottingcook from BBR end of WH. Eventually left the map in an interesting part of the forest. Road had a hard time making a go of itself given rocks and a rock-filled stream bed w/o bridge. Gray day. 9 cars in parking but saw no one. Encountered a large house debris pile, a wheelbarrow and a sofa, free submoron contributions.

Walking (Nordic walking) 1:15:43 [2] 2.75 mi (27:32 / mi) +51m 26:02 / mi

At Bear Brook with W. It’d been while, back to our UNO 4/20/19 meet.
Had a modest walk in mind, drove the length of Hayes Field so as to not have to walk its complete length. Took Carr Ridge Tr., got to the road above Hayes Marsh in much shorter a time than expected, so when I got there, I continued on the trail taking me away from the area I was planning on using. I took a left onto Lowland Tr., one I had not been on in years. It was unfamiliar but I was pretty sure it would take me to Podunk Rd. It went on and on & I was mentally picturing where it might come out even as doubt was creeping in. I had an image of its being at a corner of a forest road and, in about 100m, it came out where I'd guessed it might. Then straight to Podunk Rd. and back, the full length of Hayes Field. Was pleased to cover 2.7 mi., the longest distance I’ve covered since surgery. The walk brought many BB images and memories out of the shadows.

Rough open about 5 years ago.

Walking (Nordic walking) 45:27 [1] 0.96 mi (47:21 / mi) +48m 40:59 / mi

Bog walk with W out to contours. Actually managed more than a mile, turning on the gps as an afterthought. Met our match with muck. So much has changed re veg growth over 15 or more years. The past just disappears.
