A few days later, when Dave and I set out on our daily BDW (Big Dog Walk) - necessary to keep us both healthy and Gabby from driving us nuts with her high energy level - we decided to explore farther from home and see if we could spot Mr. Woodchuck again. Since we're trying to be healthy, but aren't fanatic, we decided the 10 mile round-trip was a bit much on foot, so we parked a little over a mile from the spot and walked in.
Along the way, Gabby made a few new friends - what is the fascination cattle have with this dog?

No luck spotting the woodchuck again, but Dave thought that surely he had been there because there was lots of wood chucked around (groan). After about twenty minutes of exploring, it was back out to the dusty, sunny road and back towards home.
Dave spotted this interesting juxtaposition, but unfortunately my camera didn't have enough zoom to capture it clearly.
What are you missing? If you look closely along the horizon, those vague gray shapes are wind turbins - the modern counterpart to the abandoned windmill. Clicking on the picture to enlarge may help, but if you still can't spot them, here's a hint:
Still don't see it? Well trust me, it was cool.
