The trail was dry in Arlington and most of Lexington this morning, wet for a couple of miles west of Bedford Street, and dry again at the Bedford end. Summer showers can be very small.
Mice are the one kind of wildlife that I see more often dead than alive along the trail. There were three of them scattered along the trail in Lexington this morning, more than I've seen in a single day. It's high season for mice, apparently.
Today: 16.5 miles. This year: 775 miles.
