Here's a bit of our walk on the trail on our way there. Just some awesome views this time of year and lots and lots of leaf crunching, BOL!
We got off the trail on the other side of the property and climbed up and up and up. We made it up to about the same height as we did the past weekend, and found some rocks that form a long ridge line up the mountain, just on the other side of the property. Pretty cool just like last week.
Gracie wants to know if this pic makes her nose look big, BOL!
This time we stayed up on the rocks for a while, just hanging out, enjoying the peace and quiet. Then it was time to make our way down. This is a more dense part of the woods, so there were lots of sticker bushes and Mum got some scratches. Lot and lots of downed trees in this area too, we went under, but Mum had to go over. Lots of squirrels everywhere I had to bark at and look out for. I think they have some kind of document management system with each other to alert them I'm coming, they taunt me so!
On our way down the ridge Mum stepped in a couple of really deep (well when you're walking they seem deep) holes and fell a couple of times. She didn't think anything of it until the next morning when her back was sore. Now it's Tuesday and she's feeling better. Good thing because we're doing USDAA this Friday and Sunday, she has to be able to run me speedy butt! Duh!!! So I'm taking good care of her.
Lots of storm rolled through here yesterday. It's so weird to see 50 foot trees swaying in the strong wind. The trees around her are sooooo tall! We walked in the pasture yesterday afternoon. Definitely a day to watch for falling limbs.
Other than yesterday, the weather here has been amazing, in the 70s and sunny, dry for days. We're hoping in a couple of weeks that we're going to venture out to some neighboring national parks and do some exploring!
Hope you're having a great week!
