End of month

I can't believe that it's the end of March already. Time really does speed up as you get older. I've had in my head the goal of getting back to hiking at least 100 miles each month. That's not always easy with a job and 10-15 dogs, but I have been closing in on it. I missed a couple days hiking this week, however, and although we walked over 7.5 miles on Thursday, I was still about three quarters of a mile short. It was rainy Friday, but actually most of it was done by morning.
I'd love to get a head-on pic of these three.
Do they make an 8' long selfie stick?


I set out with Maya, TJ, and Theo, determined to reach the 100 mile mark even if we had to walk in the rain. It was sprinkling a little when we started, but nothing came of it and we did a nominal walk of about 1.5 miles to put me over the 100 mile mark for the month. Maya walked every one of those miles with me too, I can't imagine going without her.








Maya walks around the standing water and mud
puddles. Theo walks right through them. That is
why I don't let him in the dog yard on rainy days,
he just gets to be a muddy mess. 


The little stream we cross was running high
today. We just stopped for a drink but didn't
go across it today.

TJ has the happiest expression on his face
when we are out hiking.


Maya mostly walked beside me today and
let the two boys vie of the out front spot.

Maya's footprints, right next to mine.

It's redbud time.
