Today at the Narrows it was 80+ (EIGHTY!) degrees out! E says it’s never like this here in late October. Not that I’m complaining, it was fine weather for a hike, but it’s just a hint of climate change to come.
There were lots of young families with little children and dogs, a sign that some things are slowly improving here. Many families were canoeing and kayaking down the river. There were deer, and all kinds of interesting mushrooms, fungi, and lichens. The leaves are still a mix of green and colors, but what dazzling colors!
