Trekking at the Black Sheep Gathering

I took my Trekking socks along to the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, OR. It's an almost 6 hour trek (by car) from the Seattle area. My Mom trekked in from Maryland to share the drive with me. But hey, she's not in the Trek-along.

I wanted to share some sheep breeds with fellow Trek-alonger's, but every time I pulled out the Trekking socks, a curious sheep would want to investigate.



At first, I didn't want any of the owners to think I was harming their sheep just for the blog, so I was very careful to keep the dpn far away from the inquisitive eyes.



Pretty soon I realized that I had nothing to worry about, as those sheep were pretty agressive and would have eaten those dpn's in no time flat.



I did have some time to sip a cup of coffee and relax under the awning.



If the sock fits...

How did I not run into you? I was spinning most of the day Saturday by the entrance just past Sheila's booth. :( Glad you had a good time. That drive is a haul though, isn't it?
