The Hike

I took my dogs to the state park on Sunday.  It was very warm but cloudy. I didn't hike as much as I usually do because it was so warm. I thought I would just hike out to the river and back.

I almost tried to kill  myself.  I was on this part of the trail that has a slim path and a drop off on the side.

If you look down there, you can see the creek at the bottom. So you don't want to fall here.

Anyway, these ladies came by. They got off the path so I could pass them.  So as Im passing, Guiness stops in front of me, I step on him and start to fall forward. Ack!!.  Some how I managed to stay upright on my feet. Thank goodness. All I could think was Im going to hurt my dogs or break my camera.  Lucky, none of that happened.  We made it to the river without any more problems.

Java was the only one who would go down on the rocks.  It was slippery. The water must have recently been up and covering all the rocks.

Once I brought out treats, everyone was much more accommodating.

Tons of turtles were out.

Anyway, we made it back to the car without anymore problems.

I really need to go here more. It much better physical activity for me and the dogs than the other park.  All the hills are great.

What a great place for hiking! I really envy that you get so many wonderful places for the dogs to run around and for pictures too. Those pictures are so beautiful.

Java is so adventurous and brave!

Merry Christmas to all of you!
