On the road--and back--again

We're back! And we finally got the human blogging again (at least for the moment!)... We think his mind is still up in the mountains somewhere. If there are two places he feels most at home, they are the solitude of the forest and the comfort of the past. We had plenty of both on our recent roadtrip. We even came as close to mountains as the eastern US offers: the Adirondacks. Plus, we squeezed in the Berkshires and Finger Lakes (actually just Cayuga Lake).
Rousseau did awesome with the crowded campgrounds (better than the human!) and even enjoyed a leisurely walk across a bucolic campus. We all survived a skunk scare--a neighbor dog was not so lucky--and a visit from a hungry bear cub (good thing his mama wasn't around). And although it rained a lot, we made the most of it: meatables!!! Yes, we finally got to celebrate Jacks's birthday with "cake"!
