The lodge (Tall Timber) was pleasant and the owner brought his German short hair pointers with him and we played with them a bit. That was fun and brought fond memories of our last dog, Tova. I thought I would be sad, but I was o.k.
Lots of signs at border and on the trail. I was able to read most of the French, but had to look up one word (for trapping) when we got home. No fishing, hunting, or trapping etc. The trail was steep and rocky, but we had our hiking shoes and poles. It started raining on the way back and we were glad we had rain jackets.
Joe did some fishing at First Connecticut Lake, but it was overcast and drizzling. We didn't stay long. Saw ducks and loons. Also maple trees with red and orange leaves already. Autumn comes early to the great north woods.
On the way up, we took a side road so we could see the pretty waterfall there, Beaver Brook. It was a good trip and tomorrow it's back to work again.
