Animals we "met"
For sure you had to know we would come across various creatures of the woods so this section is dedicated to those "encounters".
Early in our hike MacGyver came across this friendly creature.....however...he/she did not want to move from the trail. He tries to "gently" nudge him off the trail but to no available...so...he more than nudged him into the woods! This however, was not the end of MacGyver's encounters with snakes. Since he walks faster than me he was most of the time in the lead and one time as he walked and mometarily stopped, a snake did indeed slither thru his legs. Reminded me of the scene in the movie Platoon with Charlie Sheen and the snake!!
This is the group of section hikers from Ohio (who like Michigan State :) that were staying at a local Hostel and decided to do a 10 mile day hike this day. And the dogs owner is actually the owner of the Hostel. Apparently the dog "leads" day hikes often with people (without the owner). As he knows this particular section very well he leads and will nudge the hikers back on the trail if they try to deviate. The only thing the hikers need to do (besides hike) is carry the dogs food.

Hi Possum! MacGyver and I finished up on Sept.7th with 351 miles in this year. False alarm on MacGyver taking ill. He was dehydrated but recovered in about 2 days. Was great to meet you this year!
