I almost never talk about my sweet faced boy Atom, who also lives at Aragon Alpacas.
He is gelded (I helped!) and has lovely fiber.
Yesterday was a fun day. Tim and I went to the farm in the morning (it was a cloudy and fairly cool morning) and visited with Ann and Mike. Some families with young boys were visiting and they were adorable! We came home for lunch and hung out for a while, and then met up with friends for a late afternoon hike. There were ten of us--six adults and four kids--and one of the families was visiting from Colorado. We did the hike up to the top of Mt. Pisgah--a good local hike that is fairly short (a mile and a half one way) and really, straight up (there is a 1000 foot elevation gain from the start to the top).
We could see a pretty local forest fire from the top:
AND that causes more concerns for what apparently is now being called The Great American Eclipse and the paper is filled with warnings to get gas and water and food and medications because GRIDLOCK.
Anyway, after the hike we went to dinner at the Bier Stein and then went to Prince Pucklers for ice cream. We were pretty worn out (and dusty!) when we got home but it was a fun day. Mostly, we were happy we could do that hike and feel that we weren't killing ourselves. We've done it before and felt like our lungs were going to burn out of us. But we've been working out a bit and it was also a cooler day so those things worked together.
A good day.
