The first day of spring and Simon and I celebrated in the best possible way – we hiked Syringa. We took the pups and made a wonderful day of it: hiking end to end, going down to the lake where Shanara ecstatically chased sticks in the lake. Abby lay down in creeks along the way.
We had lunch on the way back, hiking up to the viewpoint – past the one with the bench – up to the high point where we basked in the sun. Simon estimated the temperature up there at about 16 degrees. In the sun, it felt much warmer.
We saw our first flower of the season (on the first day of spring!) and our first butterflies! As for snow – the trail was 99% snow free.
Beautiful day! Lovely conversation – giggles, snogging and all.
