The Fun Dome (#40): Close to Home

Kind of running out of gas this week. How about the pictures do the talking for this relatively short day where Sammo joined me and the dog. The only excitement was that Sammo took a dirt sample with his knee. Other than that, Leo found mud to roll in, pretty standard. I guess the cool part is that this is just north of Martin Road, essentially in town.

Yes, Leo. Mysterious creatures called "snowmachiners" use that in the winter.
