Another month under our belts and another bunch of miles under our feet. Sit down and roast a few marshmallows! How's it going? Seen any exciting sights? I think our best was the beaver dam and lodge at Greeley Ponds last week.

We saw a beaver dam and house, a couple of birds, a flying critter that we think was a bat, and lots of pretty flowers.
edited to add: Neil says I forgot some mileage. 1.5 on Friday night, after we got home from dinner, and half a mile short on yesterday's hike. Corrected numbers:
Which puts me only A mile short of Mollie's Ridge shelter. I should be past that tomorrow.

Two walks today, both short ones of about 1 mile, then an event at school where I didn't walk nearly as much as I'd expected, but at least I got over 2.5. Oh, and look at that! 300 miles for the year :).
Hope you all walk well while I'm gone.

I swear it wasn't planned to match my distance exactly. Today I did walk. One stroll through an airconditioned mall then a short walk around our complex. Still not up to the minimum, but I'm getting better.

Looks like I'm a stone's throw from Spring Mountain Shelter on the Tennessee/ North Carolina border. Cool.
The temperature around here has shot up from about 55F to over 80F. Where are the fans? Why isn't the air conditioner hooked up in the bedroom? HOTTT! (not really complaining, I'll save that for next week...)

I managed to log steps in addition to work and puttering. The weather was gorgeous today, so I dragged Eric out for a walk after dinner. I hope to continue that trend.

Today I got in 9145 steps between walking at lunch and general walking around at work, for 4.5725 miles. Yesterday I managed 11105 steps 5.5525 miles, I'd walked on my own after work, then the hubby and I went shopping when he was done with work. We walked around the mall, Staples, and I walked around Michaels (yay for more beads). When I was finishing my walk around campus I saw a duck when I was returning to my office. It was funny, he was more interested in his reflection in the glass then he was me. Poor thing probably thought it was another duck.
AT total: 133.1575 :)
At some point this week I'll update the map again.

Got a shorter than normal morning walk so not as many miles as I've been doing of late, but I walked around a new lake downtown and got to see a very strange goose, another breed of duck and a black bird that sits up like a penguin, is the size of a smallish Canadian goose and has a VERY long neck. Wish I'd had my binoculars to get a closer look. Evening walk was the normal route with nothing unusual.

I think I'm on track for packers on Wednesday morning, but it's hard to tell with everything jumbled up like it is now.
At the moment, I can't see the bed, so I have a little work to do before I can hit the sack tonight.

I think I'll double back and spend the night at Cold Spring Shelter. I might not come out tomorrow...
Here's what the shelter looks like in good weather.
