Blessing of the Hounds 2013

Saturday, 9/28/13 was the Blessing of the Hounds, marking the start of formal season.  It was a brilliant day that began shrouded in fog and ended a little too warm to be wearing our wool coats and vests!  Several guest photographers were there, so I was fortunate to have a few photos taken of us during the hunt.

I took several photos during the hunt as usual. :)  Here are a few selected from the gallery:

It was a great hunt.  This week, we're hunting Wednesday and Saturday.  It's supposed to be 80°F on Wednesday.  We're going to melt!
