Nice pics. I too was there on the 26th, but I don't think I saw you guys. I definitely agree that you should go before the insects become a factor.
"The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can.
Pursuing it with eager feet
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."
