The trail was pretty steep (for us, anyway!), muddy and slippery in places. I could definitely tell that my muscles were getting a little bit of a workout.
We hiked a good way up but not all the way to the top. What a view even from this vantage point, though!
When we got back an hour later, the eagle was still sitting in the cemetery. Or maybe it was another one who chose the same spot. :)
Despite our best intentions, we haven't been out since Tuesday. I thought about walking to work again yesterday but had a lunch engagement and knew I wouldn't have time to walk both ways in the AM without wasting a lot of work time. We tarried quite awhile at lunch so then I was feeling guilty and needed to get to the office. And the weather has not been all that fabulous the last two days. Those are my excuses and I am sticking to them.
