Woo, everypuppy and everycat. Dave here, with a report on a cool adventure I had with my mom the other day. We decided to go check out this cool scenic overlook place we read about on the Kansas - Flint Hills site to see if there were any walking trails for us to explore. We got to go in the car to get there, so it was like two fun things in one!
Mom parked the car and we went over to take in the view. Well, OK, she took in the view, I started snoofing everything within snooter range! Mom said she could see lots of the campus and the east side of town from up there. Here's one look:
You should be able to click that to make it bigger. See the "KS" on the hill out there? Woo! That's for Kansas!
We started to explore the little park up there. We went back behind the water tower on a dirt trail - and saw this up on a rock ledge:
It's a marker honoring the guys whose founded our town. Mom thought it was sort of sad that it was in the middle of pretty much nowhere and not many people would see it. I thought it was great because we saw a little path up behind it, so I hopped up there and we started to explore!
This is one of the little trails we found:
Sorry the picture is a little blurry. There were some mutterings behind me about somepuppy was pulling too hard, and someone tripping over rocks, and stumbling. I'm not quite sure what that was all about.
We got to a little break in the trees at one point and stopped to see what we could see.
For some reason, Mom was more focused on the rocks on the trail that the view at that point.
We made our way back around to near where we'd left the car and there were some cool rock chunks I climbed on. I struck a Rin Tin Tin pose:
Pretty good imitation don't you think?
We went back over to the lookout area ...
... and I took in all the sights and smells once more before we headed home. What a fun adventure!
In totally other news, we got a package yesterday from our friends Rubi and Denali. They live in Pittsburgh and sent us some cool fabric. Mom called me over to see it, but look at who claimed it!
I really thought she was backing the Cardinals. Hmm. Anywoo, Mom made us cool bandanas and we'll post pix of us wearing them tomorrow! Woo!
