Aqua pura and salamanders 

Finding good water to drink is a concern every day. My preference is to find a spring (as opposed to a stream or a pond – or even a treated water source) . Here’s an example of a spring gushing from the ground near the trail


I’ve had trouble photographing salamanders. I usually turn over a few rocks whenever I cross a stream, but they are hard to catch – and their movement is very interesting. So I found this rather large one and got some video

It’s been raining for two days and I found refuge in a Howard Johnson’s in Daleville  VA – didn’t know HoJo’s were still around


On my way into town I collected some gems


Paw paws, chestnuts, hickory nuts, and walnuts. Hope u can tell which is which.

 Crossed interstate 81


Found some nice fungi





And some colorful acorns




Got a few views by the end of the day



Had dinner with my German hiking friend Walking Tree


Heading out into the rain with hope of clearing skies this afternoon,

Junco
