It has been about 20 years since I have hiked this trail. I brought Snickers. It was windy in spots, but the wind cooled us off. Hawks and other raptors are nesting in the area. I didn't see any but heard some calls.

The Buttes are located in the Pawnee National Grasslands. Bring water. It is difficult to find the trails. There are signs, but they aren't too helpful.

Today was opening day and a free day at Centennial Village. I decided to take advantage and do a different Virtual Field Trip to include on my Greeley History Website.

I was able to tour the inside of homes that I have not been able to see before. And the trolley (street car) has been refurbished.

Bring picnic lunches. No food or drink is allowed inside any of the buildings.

Took Snickers on the trail today. It was a beautiful day with a lot of sunshine.

Bring water. If you are walking a dog, it would be good to bring a portable water dish and water for them. There are porta-johns available.

I was in Missoula, Montana for a wedding. My dog, Snickers, came with me. I found this walking trail and decided to take the dog for a nice long walk.The trail is very dog friendly. There were walkers, bikers, and runners. Attached to the trail is a dog park "Bark Park." I had thought about taking Snickers into the park but that may be a bit too much for her.

Emma and I went on a lobster boat tour in Kennebunk. We were on the Kylies' Second Chance. We saw former President George H. Bush's fishing boat with the Secret Service boat tied up next to it. We also saw Walker's Point where he and Barbara spend their summers, and St Ann's church where they attend Sunday services. We did catch a few lobsters and learned quite a bit about them.

We sailed out into Boston Harbor and even tossed a few boxes of tea. It turned out to actually be a great day for the sail. At first, I was concerned about being too cold and having to deal with a lot of rain.There were only about 16 of us onboard so it was a very relaxing fun trip. Amazingly, most everyone volunteered to raise the sails.

Two days of walking the Freedom Trail. We did take a few side trips so our path meanders a bit from the Trail. The Freedom Trail begins at the Boston Common the oldest public park in the USA, and continues over to Charlestown with the Bunker Hill Monument and Old Ironsides. This year we did not ever make it over to Charlestown.

The sun was out, and it actually got hot. The sun also brought out the mosquitos. This was a beautiful hike.

Class today at the Poudre Learning Center. We walked a different part of the trail than I have done before. It was cold and windy to start but once the wind stopped, it was quite warm.

It was just a great day for the zoo.  I took many pictures so I decided to do this trip in two parts.
