Osha Trail Once More....

We tried to bring Anna and Colin back to do the Osha Trail while they were here but every time we started out to hike the afternoon rains would nix the project.

Beverly and I did it yesterday and we took little Patch. It was a fine day and we decided we would do the course counter-clockwise to change the routine up a bit. It took 1.5 hrs and Patch walked most of it unaided.

Here are some pics and vids.

Bev finalizing some business deal....
 This is a shot of the old tressle from 1900 that was part of the train track from Alamogordo to Cloudcroft
 Patch and me on top of the mountain....
 Pretty Bev grinning all the way...
 Tired old fart taking a break......and his old dog




My sister said she was looking fwd to see more trail hike vids...

And Beverly took a couple for Norma too...




This is a revealing video because I got stung at the end of it.   Second time in two months that I've been stung.  It ain't easy being attractive.

This is the result of that sting......ouch!

Country internet isn't letting me see all these vids here at Green Acres. Oh well. The bite/sting looks nasty, but more like nettles than a stinger, huh?
