Normally, Kersey and I take our walks up the dirt road that circles behind our property. It's a three mile loop. Sometimes I do the entire loop but, more often, we walk to the halfway point and then turn around and come back home. That way we don't have to walk on the paved road at all -- which lacks a shoulder in many spots.
The road starts out with our property to right, just on the other side of those blackberry bushes.
|Kersey loves this part. Skunks live in those berry bushes.|
|We lose the trees for awhile; not good on a warm day like Sunday.|
|I love golden October light.|
|Back in the trees, the road curves and climbs;|
|We huff and puff our way to the top;|
|to the telephone pole that marks half-way & turn around.|
|is worth the climb.|
|We take a few rest stops on the way back home.|
