Dry forest on a hill



3/27/2024: Barbara was off to shop, so I took the opportunity to climb some stairs near our pension to the top of a nearby hill. On the way, I found a magic tree which stopped me for awhile. The top of the hill was full of feral dogs, but I didn't have a problem with the feral ones. Then, some jogger shows up with two dogs leashed to each other. One of the dogs decided to try and kill me, but he was unsuccessful due to being tied to the other dog (who seemed nice). Comedy stuff watching those two falling over each other.
