Turkey Day Trek

First light
Dr. K, Becca and I got a bit later start on our hike this morning because we were listening to our wacko president behaving completely inappropriately on his Thanksgiving call to our military men and women across the world.  Afterward we made the short drive over to the Grand View Trail in the Lincoln National Forest and did our usual trek.  It was slightly cool out, especially when the high overcast blocked the sun; but when the sun broke through we felt a little overdressed for the conditions.  Nevertheless, we had a grand ole time on the Grand View Trail on this day of thanks-giving.
