It was 27 F when we went out this morning, and things didn't warm up all too quickly afterwards.  Still, the sun was shining and the cold wind was really a breeze.  For a gorgeous Sunday morning on a spectacular trail in the Lincoln National Forest we were pleased to encounter only seven other people on our hike.  Just two had dogs, a man and woman with mini-canines they picked up to pass Becca.  The woman commented on how well behaved Becca was, and I immediately (accidentally) stepped on Becca's foot, causing her to let out a loud yelp.  Dr. K worried later that the man and woman probably thought we were torturing Becca into obedience.
