Lower to Upper

Tahquamenon Falls, that is. We hiked with folks from both the North Country Trail and Sault Naturalists. I had a great time but I am not very coherent at this point. We drove The Commander’s Tracker and did not blow up the engine, even though we occasionally drove it over 50 mph. There was a moth hatch while we were walking, even though there was snow everywhere. And a kettle of maybe 50 hawks above the Curley Lewis near Naomikong. We were (I was) alarmed when we passed the fabric/yarn store in Paradise on the way up because it looked like it had closed but on our return trip we took a closer look and found that it had actually *expanded*! Yay! We still miss the old Rock Shoppe but it burned to the ground a while back. You can still see the foundation. Radical Betty is a celebrity around here and I should have left the GG at the Yukon Inn except that he’d probably have fallen asleep in his beer or whatever. That is probably not all but that’s all I can think of for now. And I’m babbling, so I’ll shut up. I think. Blup blup blup. Bagrawk.

    Well, apparently the Sault Naturalists had something like 8 theories as to why moths were hatching out in the woods at this time of year. I wouldn’t know. I hike to hike. The Naturalists hike to observe. Therefore, I was way ahead of almost everyone. Except Jacob, a very determined 8-year-old who would not hike anywhere except *first*, and his family, some of whom were struggling to keep up. It was pretty fun but I wouldn’t want to do it every hike.
