And, we're back :)

Vermont was wonderful, but I think Holly's actually quite glad to be home. While we're away she's with us all day and I do some pretty intense hikes, at home she spends most of her day just hanging out and goes out with me after work. She's also 10, which is not to say she's old, she kept up with me on all of our hikes this week, but I think she's looking forward to getting back in her old routine :)

Warm and a bit sticky, 78F.

Catching up on a podcast or two.
