Update from the Shepherd


Attached is photo #1801, 55mm from the East Photo Point (from Harriet Bald, viewing Jane), a momentary parting shot as the goats are, as of this past Thursday, September 3, at the Appalachian Trail - Grassy Ridge Trail junction (mostly on the NC side of the line and up to but not beyond the trail fork). The ca. 6 original acres from 2008 are now 13 days behind us. Later this week we begin our descent back into Sisters' Saddle on the TN side of the AT, probably re-browsing a previous paddock or two in the final week as we hope to get the goats back atop Jane Bald to facilitate their Herding off the Balds on Wednesday, September 30 (meeting at Carvers Gap at 9am, planning to be out with the goats by 10am).

Baa-fully yours, jamey
