The three day Columbus Day weekend rained and rained and rained. Louise and I managed to go for a few short walks around the cabin during spells when the rain slowed down to a drizzle. For the rest of the time we sat on the big covered front porch enjoying the wild life, reading and conversation or were inside compulsively working on a 1,000 piece jig-saw puzzle that featured historic Virginia. One of the delightful bird songs came after dusk from a Barred Owl doing his "Who who who cooks for you"
Fall colors are here for the next few weeks.
On Sunday I hung out with the PATC Trail Patrollers until around noon then went to Old Rag to hike and do volunteer outreach
