Fall Colors Between Rhio's Ears

Fall Colors Between Rhio's Ears

Sunday, August 1, 2010


A few weeks ago I spied a likely looking ski trail system about 45 minutes drive north of the farm, while I was on a successful quest for wild blueberries.  Today, Gesa & I had the opportunity and, according to the radar on the NOAA website, enough time before the rain and thunderstorms moved in to go explore.

Number of fabulous outhouses: 1

Number of uncrossable bogs: 1

Number of replanted clear cuts with beautiful views: 1

Number of lobster mushrooms viewed from horseback: probably at least 30

Number of times I lead us cross-country bushwhacking: 1

Number of eskers (glacier-related geological feature) we climbed & descended: 2

Number of scratches from low-hanging branches: uncountable 

Number of Easyboots lost (and then found): 1

Number of happy humans & hungry horses after 8 miles of fun: 4
