Autumn in the Great Northeast!

Autumn in the great northeast is usually a site to behold.  I used to love hiking by Round Valley Reservoir when I was a teen ager and in to my 20 and beyond, but as I got older and started gaining uber weight my time for hiking or even walking came to a screeching halt.  Never mind walking, I could barely get off the couch!

Over the last 14 months I have lost a total of 130 lbs after I went in for Bariatric Gastric Sleeve surgery on Sept 2nd, 2014 and that HAS made all the difference. Now I walk whenever I can get out
and since I work near a lake with trails around it, I try to walk those trails as much as I can.  I believe its about 3 miles total around the lake and back.  It really is a beautiful walk any time of the year.

For Halloween I tried to run a short story contest but because of the lack of participation that kind of fell through, Thanks all of my followers!  What do I have to do to make you comment???  I digress...

On my walk today with my good friend Pat (who btw held my hand the first time I went to the surgeon's office way back in April 2014) we decided to hit the local cemetery on the other side of Lake Etra.

It was a very interesting and very old family cemetery.  The name of the Family was/is Hutchinson.  I found this pdf file on  the internet when I did a search for this family.  You can read more about them at this link:


If you would like to see more pictures of the cemetery, you can find that link here:

If you decide to take a walk there, just watch out for these man eaters!
