Evening hike

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014
Birch, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 October 2014.


On account of how busy this day got—including a (routine) trip to the vet for both dog and cat—I didn’t get to hike with Jack until after 5 p.m. This time of year, that amounts to evening. (And DST ends in a few days.)

But we did have a brisk hike in the blue overcast. A few birds were about, but the light was dim. It was all I could do, in fact, to ID the hermit thrush bouncing down the rocks of the stone wall along Beech Hill Road. Good thing I’ve got a nice pair of Swarovski binocs.

Kind of nice, though—an evening hike.
