As we were walking along the new Coggs Traverse trail on our way to Enger Tower I noticed what looked like deer tracks, then I noticed a large dog paw print and wondered if he could be an animal like a wolf or a bobcat, but I really couldn’t tell. Then we came to these prints. And it was hard to say how fresh they were. There have been lots of sightings of bears in town this summer, I don’t think I really want to meet one. (Even though I’ve written a story about what to do if you see one.) So, we turned around and went back.

Today it was gourds and mums
I was so busy today that I almost didn’t get a photo. It’s getting dark out earlier and earlier. This photo was taken at about 7:30. I was surprised by the rushing water, must be from all the rain we’ve gotten lately.
Today was rainy. The leaves are turning but they seem a little subdued or muted to me.
It was about 70 degrees today, but it felt much warmer. Tomorrow there is a high chance of rain.
Today was a beautiful day with a bright blue sky.
