A Hike With My New Friend

Today I got to meet a lady  I am friends with on Facebook. Her name is Linda. We met online when I was doing a blog about a park they put in near my home. Linda saw my blog on Facebook and being that she lives just a mile or two from me, she sent me a message and we started communicating online. After several months, we finally decided to get together for a hike. Found out that we are a lot alike and we have a lot of things in common. We are planning on more hikes together in the near future.

An Acorn Woodpecker

This is an old post where the Acorn Woodpeckers have made holes and stashed their acorns. Hence their name "Acorn Woodpecker"


  1. Wow thats great. You two continue to have fun hiking together. May be a start to a long friendship.

  2. Great to meet a new friend ... hard to find someone that you click with so well ... you done good.

    Love the old hearth. That woodpecker stash is also very interesting. We don't have those kind of woodpeckers up here.

    Speaking of up here, -13 C at the moment. I had a lot of snow to shovel before I could get out of the driveway this morning.

  3. Great photo...I've never seen holes with the acorns stashed this way!

    Great you've met a blog friend and can enjoy each other "live and in person" on your hikes!

  4. That's neat that you met a new friend online. I have met so many wonderful people ---friends for life---through my blogging.

    Looks like you two had a great hike.

  5. Now that is neat the woodpeckers have of storing there food.
    Glad you found a new buddy to hike with I would love to be in that beautiful place.
