Friends joined me on a morning walk

I have recently fallen in love with walking the Windham Rail Trail. This morning I decided to walk it from Salem to Windham then have breakfast at Windham Junction.

At about 2 miles into my walk I had to slow my pace because I ran into a few friends.

Can you think of a better way to start your Sunday than to walk on a path through nature enjoying the sights and sounds and encountering a few geese?

On my return walk I didn't run into new friends, but I did see the geese left their calling cards all over the trail. Wasn't that nice of them?

I didn't run into any more feathery friends. I did, however, listen to a couple of ground squirrels AKA chipmunks having a rather heated argument. Of course, they stopped chattering when I chuckled.

Then I heard this strange noise in the pond/swamp that was a tad eery. It sounded as if the Loch Ness Monster or a Slestak was rumbling beneath the lillie pads, moss, and brown water.

I kept looking for the creature that made the fire-breathing dragon noise and made the tiny hairs on my arms stand at attention, but alas, I did not find the culprit. Maybe next time.

Very cool! New Hampshire needs it's own critter like Nessie. Maybe you've discovered it!

Took my son there today with my dad so they could ride bikes while I walked the dog. They did great ... 4 miles in and 4 miles back and they stopped to watch frogs and a snake and other critters. Me and the dog on the other hand... My dog is a diva and had NO INTEREST in walking today. I made it as far as the .05 mile marker. It's a great trail to walk / bike etc. Too bad my dog is lazier than me.
