In what seems to be my usual way of blogging of late, I loaded these pictures a couple weeks ago and am finally adding some text! For those of you that have followed us since blog day one, you may recall there was a new and hopefully interesting adventure posted nearly everyday - my things have changed haven't they! I knew when we started our volunteer position that the posts wouldn't be as interesting or as frequent but jeeesh louise, this isn't good!
Anyway, one of our tasks a few weeks back was to walk the trail to and along the gorge and pick up rubbish (hikers and campers in these parts are very very conscientious of litter so there was very little to pick up!).
The gorgeous swimming area at the bottom of the gorge. Sir Arlo would LOVE to swim down here and the walk down and back would certainly be some good exercise for him (as it was for us).
Along the way, of course we passed lots of mushrooms (since it rarely stops raining here there is a plethora of fungi) and flowers
And a "lady's slipper"
and a man and his dog!
Last weekend was the annual Quechee Balloon Festival - I got some great photos - even a couple of the balloons over the gorge. I think that I want to add "balloon chaser" to my bucket list.
Stay tuned ...
