Today was miserable and raw. It was 40 degrees when I woke up, and a steady rain was falling from the sky. I knew it wasn’t going to be fun. The forecast called for heavy rains all day.

I headed into an area I’ve never been and decided to cover as much ground as possible. When the day ended, I had put on about none miles. I get messed up a few times and had to trust my compass to get me back on track. I saw some good scenery and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I often enjoy my own company. I found some sign that might deserve another look at some point in time. I’ve ventured all over the Adirondacks, and I have to admit that this place intrigued me with the possibilities that it had to offer. I’ll have to think about it over the next few weeks to see what I can draw from my journey. I never make snap judgments after my first trip into an area. Sometimes we can think it’s not worth going back, and other times we think it’s the best thing since sliced bread. When we return, it’s not as we had constructed in our own minds.

Although I never saw an actual living animal on my walk, the deer must’ve decided to move in the late afternoon. When I was putting stuff in my truck to head home, I got a closeup of this guy. That topped off my weekend. What a great first weekend of rifle season. It was a great time.
