Even on a weekday there is no escaping people, even on the once virtually unknown connector trail. We managed to get in a nice hike in spite of running into several nice people, one weirdo and a mountain biker. Are mountain bikes allowed on the Lower Ellinor trail?
I did not find any mushrooms, I don't know where they are this year, perhaps lower down. We started our hike at about 9:45 after stopping at Hoodsport Trail to catch Kabuto. We finished up around 3:30 and stopped again to catch Kabuto on the way home.
The days are getting shorter now, daylight wasting time is in full force.

Something is wrong with Sage, she has trouble getting up when she has been laying down. She goes back to the vet on Monday.
