|Boots ready for the trails.|
Last summer we were thrilled to realize Beansprout really likes hiking, and made a concerted effort to get out to different trails in the area. In our years hiking with a dog, some trails were off limits to us, so it was even more refreshing to get out for a hike on a new trail! I'm still amazed at how great Beansprout does on the trails. Hand-in-hand we walked the Red Trail at Malcolm Knapp Research Forest, and he didn't ask for a shoulder ride until we were more than half-way through. Little trooper.
|My favorite part of the trail - I love the way the trees are covered in lichen and how there is almost a uniformity to the way their branches turn toward the sky.|
|We saw a few trees that had been uprooted by the winds, but the wall that this particular tree created is unreal.|
|Though Beansprout enjoyed the hike, the dump truck and the two logging trucks coming off the mountain were the big highlights for him!|
I would love to hear how you get yourselves outside. Have you taken on any new trails lately? Any new adventures in the great outdoors?
