Another beautiful Saturday - - September in New Jersey is so refreshing after August's sauna-like weather. These days are warm (up in the high 70's) but dry and comfortable. Davis and I repeated the hike I'd done with Katherine through Mercer Meadows - - having lunch in Lawrenceville then hiking back. The meadows are beginning to smell like fall. Late summer flowers are blooming and the butterflies are all over them. Full pack, 17 pounds, and overall, a comfortable hike.
