Led a bird walk this morning. It was a pretty fun time. Lots and lots of warblers (and other species) right near the trailhead first thing. Fewer birds higher up—and a stout northwest wind at the summit.

But also a loon at the summit. Kestrel. Broad-winged hawk. A coffee and pastries and a fireplace fire and classical guitar music in the hut.

Dog and I would surely enjoy day like this every day of the year.
