Which goes to show two things:
a) the power of advertising. That this line sticks in memory for years and years is powerful stuff.
b) that with the right clothing, there is no place better to be than OUT.
Still, I am reminded of the Saskatchewan farmer who retired into the mountains of B.C. Asked how he liked it, he shrugged. "It's nice enough," he avowed, "but the mountains sure do block the view."
Much the same can be said for a summer woodland. Come this time of year, the view sort of 'opens up.'
Many thanks to Gloria Woodside for sending me these beautiful photos of the Baysville Hiking Club's hike with us!
