I would like to take a moment to give credit where credit is due; at some point on our trip, my memory card decided it needed to be reformatted and I lost all the pictures I had taken. I refused to mess with it, hoping that someday the technology would exist to allow me to recover my photos. All of the photos above were taken by my friend Phil Bolles, who was kind enough to share them with me.
Skip ahead to (about this time!) last year, I took that memory card into tekserve, and lo and behold, they were able to save some of my beloved lost pictures. Not all of them, but enough to make me feel plenty validated for holding onto that card without reformatting it even when the tech 'experts' told me it was junk. My own photos from this day are below.

But, luckily Cadence found a way to eat it without getting messy.
It was a long eventful day, which saw more geese and cool pants and learning to play mountain dulcimers, seeing snakes and baby quail and...a lot. Including Cadence's first tickbite, and the accidental loss of my trusty glasses to the bottom of a deep murky pond. Oops!
