We met a park ranger pulling invasive Canada Thistle and Common Mullein on the Fox Hollow trail.
We watched, what I think were, turkey vultures walk around the Snead farm barn. They eventually settled in the empty window frames.
We (Bow mostly) stared at the Shenandoah valley near the six mile marker on the Dickey Ridge trail.
Afterward we encountered a black bear and her cub (a distance away). Unfortunately I was not fast enough to get a picture.
It was a perfect hiking day. It was sunny, but not hot. A slight breeze kept mosquitoes and other insects away. The forest smelled of warm wood and mineral dust. The fields smelled like milkweed and bergamot. The dogs kept urging us forward. They have been sleeping ever since.
