Hope springs eternal..
I found a tree with blossoms on it. I have no clue what it is... cherry? crab apple?
Angel is next to a piece of "Three Rivers Slate". Joni would like me to gather a couple large pieces every time I walk and carry them home in order to start a patio. The best place to harvest the slate is half ways down the canyon. It would be a real act of love to follow through with this project. The slate is heavy. The road steep.
Yet doing something like that might get me in better shape for hiking season this summer...I wonder how long it would take me to drag up enough rock for a patio?
