covering the Silo

Rien has a sore back but is doing way better
but Marc and him switched what they usually do
we didn't find all the bags, so we used some of the spares

water break

covering 2 bunks is quite enough!
but so thankful is became cloudy

Jones Bluff and Crooked Toe rd.

Up on the Bluff, we look back on all the bluffs we have been on before

 It was a day of mushrooms

they were all over the place

beautiful colours

multiple lookouts, most on the north side

but some on the south

some fall colours 

and a boat in a weird place

on Crooked Toe Rd.
