On the FLT with the Botanical Hiker

I was particularly thrilled to be with her when she hiked the section of trail I maintain with Gail and a neighbor between Shindagin Hollow Rd. and South Rd. in Caroline.  Besides being one of the most picturesque sections I know of (OK, I haven't hiked all that many, but people say it is), it's where I've created some art out of piles of stone made long ago by farmers trying to get a crop out of the thin soils on the hilltops.
They should have waited for her book to come out, there was plenty to eat without cultivation.  We stopped for lunch at the lean-to by the waterfall and ate some good food we had brought with us.  Some of it from a store.
