as you can see, adventures ensued, many of them involving minnow sitting patiently in scenic locations while i took his picture. we saw hills and waterfalls and lots of moss, and we hiked a very little bit of the appalachian trail. minnow was an enthusiastic hiker, forging through streams and up rocky hills with fortitude. then he fell sound asleep on the back seat the whole way home. jeeze, this state is a lovely place.
