Blueberry Ledge Trail is a challenging trail. Nice job! Nice pics! My only negative comment would be that you need to get something other than cotton to hike in! :) You'll find the synthetics much cooler and they wick the sweat away from your body. If they get wet they dry very quickly. In the mountains there is a saying "Cotton Kills!" If you get drenched in a downpour it takes a long time for cotton to dry and this can lead to hypothermia very quickly.

I'm only sayin' this 'cause I care! :)

Thanks for sharing your many nice pictures. Congrats on your hike! After so many wash-out days, it must have felt really nice to get out and have a clear day.

He burns a lot of calories, and doing Whiteface, he drank almost 2 liters of water. But he still has his belly :D Maybe it's the every other week chocolate chip cookies I bake?? Could be my terrible Southern Belle cooking from scratch?? ROFL Maybe it is the homemade bread?? UMMMM no he usually only gets one slice of that before the dog and I eat the rest HaHaHaHa

It's all good!! I love him just the way he is!!:D

Ms,

All that may be true. But, you do not want to hear him whining after STP 09 the hike was not easy?

I don't think you want to go there Mr Craigs list addict LOL

He didn't whine after STP 08, but he has been since his rained out event when he twisted his ankle :rolleyes:
