Gorgeous night for a hike in the woods with friends. And by "friends", I mean people and dogs. Not the 20+ ticks I found on myself. Thoroughly grossed out. I will not be hiking this summer. Ugh.
Otherwise, we had fun; in the first quarter mile on the trail, the dogs spotted a wild turkey hen and just about dragged me through the woods after it. Later we found a large snapping turtle by the lake.
The dandelions must like all the sun and the rain: the heads were as large as baseballs! Haven't seen them that large since Alaska, two years ago. (Man do I need another vacation...)
