The Dam Crew


Tuesday I accomplished lots of errands.  Bringing my car in for it's check-up/oil change was on the top of the list.  It was while I was driving to/from the dealership, that "an idea" tiptoed into my head.  After my car got a clean bill of health, I intentionally took the back way home.


Within a few miles of home, I pulled over to chat with the construction crew that have been working at the dam for months.  Installing a "fish lift," they've been there for about nine months and now recognize me.  They knew I would, as usual, park my car on the side of the road, and begin walking.

A great bunch of guys (from Maine actually), they always give me leads as to what to avoid in case the footing becomes "iffy".

I now carry extra clothes, hats, my walking stick and hiking shoes in my car so when I'm in the mood for a stroll, I'm prepared.  Of course, because they're there, I feel totally safe, although a friend of mine suggested that I should carry either pepper spray or mace with me at all times.

You're always prepared and always make friends wherever you go. That looks like a peaceful place for a hike

the photos are amazing today, love the road winding through the trees and you car reflection. i am much to fearful of walking alone, but i know how much you love it.

It's sad to think pepper spray or mace should be on the checklist with hiking boots ... maybe I am naïve, but this would never even occur to me! I like your shots today - good for you to 'take the road less traveled.'

Well, the other piece of equipment need not be mentioned, but I'm glad you had that camera along as well!
