The dog and I took a hike yesterday afternoon along the blue-blazed North Country Trail. It was a pleasant day to wee what signs of spring may be lurking under the dead leaves. The trail wove in and out between hardwood stands and pine plantations. A stiff breeze was blowing, bringing in cooler and wetter weather. Tonight they’re calling for snow, but yesterday the wind rustled through the pines, creating the lonely sound that gives a rise to my desire to roam. I’m not in a writing mood at present, so I’ll leave you with a few photographs to enjoy. As I've alluded to before, the dog doesn't like his picture taken! So I only got "back shots" of him prancing down the trail. Notice the blue blaze of the North Country Trail.A woodpecker appears to have been hard at work.
