It rained for a couple of hours last night which means there will be very little dust going up the road. It also means there may be a few spots that are softer after the rain. No matter, it is what it is!
Lower portion of road about halfway up the hill
This may be the big test for Dod
Did you ever notice how no matter how steep the terrain is, a picture very seldom captures the true grade. This section is much steeper than it looks. See the post on the left? The road is so steep there that Tioga George slips each time he passes this section and grabs the post for support. My friend Bob made a good discovery: If you walk down the center of the road where the dirt is softer, you have less chance of slipping.
This morning as I was enjoying my coffee in Dod, I looked out to see a bird I hadn't seen before. I think the rain last night brought them out to feed on the lawn. Don't know if they eat seeds or bugs but I sure hope it is bugs!
I think this is a good test for Judy of Travels with Emma, she hit it right on the head identifying the Kiskadee a couple of weeks ago!
