Postcards from the Trail

Daisy and I went for a walk this morning, I was just going to do about a mile, to the end of our road and back. Halfway to the end of our road, I decided we might as well as go down the big hill to check on the construction. They decided the bridge at the bottom of the hill needed to be replaced.  The bridge is really an overgrown culvert, so when they blocked off the hill so that our dirt road became the detour route, I didn’t think it would take too long. Three weeks of zipping cars and lumbering dump trucks later, I thought I would check in on the progress.

Daisy had a great time!! As soon as we hit the tar road we met some neighbors from up on the hill walking down to inspect the road work with their dog. After some initial excitement, we all continued down the hill. It doesn’t look good for getting our road back anytime soon. But on the way home we met our garbage lady–Daisy thought she smelled awesome. Then we met the new tenants in the house up the road. Of course Daisy loved everyone. And everyone loved Daisy.

Since we were walking I got to take pictures of everything I see when I am running and don’t want to stop. It worked out well for everyone: I got to take pictures and Daisy got to sniff while I did 🙂

 daisy was pretty sure the barrel was going to attack her.
after the wet grass and dirt road, she had mud-locks
on her legs, she went straight into the tub!

stone cairns left by the road crew that widened our road last month;
like Stonehenge i am sure they mean something, i am just not
sure what

my road looks so nice in the early morning, between the hush and the light
