Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
--John Muir (1838-1914) Scottish-born American naturalist, author, and early advocate of conservation of U.S. wilderness.
Blue hasn't had many adventures since his knee went out last November playing frisbee. It's been a long, slow healing process. This was one of our first "long" treks since his surgery -- a hike up Round Bald down to Engine Gap and then back to Carver's Gap. He did great and enjoyed being out on the trail. :)
