The day in pictures
By the time I was back down in the valley and crossing to the other side, the weather was warm, still sunny, and still calm - ideal for walking the rural pasture land. I really enjoy these pasture walks, perhaps because they're so rare compared to the miles of woodland trekking.
Finally by mid-afternoon I reached Kelly Knob on the other side of the valley, where I turned around for the day. Cloud had moved in by then. Here's the view.
There on Kelly Knob I had a nice conversation with four young ladies, all Veterinary Students at Virginia Tech in nearby Blacksburg. They were out enjoying their last day of 'freedom' before classes begin tomorrow. I asked them if anything interesting was going on in town this coming week. Nothing ... except ... well, you're doing it - it seems Virginia Tech is a place you go if you like to hike!!!
