I'm On Top of the World! (Again!)

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Lots to tell you about today, so let's get to it!

Remember back in March, I told you about me and Mom going to the Top of the World!??  We went there again!  The Flint Hills are all lush and green now, there are tons of wildflowers blooming, and oh, the SNIFFIES!  Wowzers!  Check out the path with me:

Sniff!  Sniff!

Can you almost smell it!??  Let's get started down the trail!

We walked and walked and looked all over the place!

Hey, what's over there?

Then we got to what we thought was the end of the trail, but it really wasn't.  It's just that there's a steep drop-off.  Take a look:


I could see forever up there!  Can you see the sort of blue thing in the upper right corner?  That's the water tower near Ao4 HQs!  Cool, huh?  I thought we should keep going down the path.  Mom only had her iPhone, not the camera, so we couldn't shoot a cool video like our friends in the Thundering Herd, but I was thinking about them and asked Mom to take some action shots of me heading down the hill.  Here's the only photo she took:

...then we headed back up.  She was mumbling something about a "whole, new appreciation" for the Thundering Herd's bipeds.  Ha roo roo roo!

Back up on top, we came to another cool over-look.  Check out this scene:

I almost saved it for Serene Scenery Sunday, but hey, consider it a jump-start for that.  I found a path heading down there that wasn't quite as steep as the other:

Hey, Mom!  Whatcha think?

She said next time we'd go down there, but for now, she was worried I was getting too hot.

Good point.  Let's go have a cool beverage!

I was thinking Frozen Mocha Latte; Mom was thinking water.  Rats!  (Sorry, not you, Roger!)

As I got ready to mount up, Mom told me she had a surprise for me!  She told me a secret, and it made me smile!

Me, smiling

Want a little clue?  Mom and I are heading out on another adventure today!

Not down this road... though this gives you a good comparison to the last time I was here, doesn't it?  No... today I get to meet the mom of some fellow bloggers!!!  It's someone we've never met before and I'm TOTALLY excited!!!

Can't tell you any more right now; I have to go get ready.  I want to look my very coolest for her.  I'll tell you all about it soon!

Play bows,

  14. That's a great place to visit and how lucky you were the one to get to go. Too bad you didn't get that latte. Can't wait to see and hear about your trip today.

  19. It's so beautiful there!

    Can't wait to hear about your other adventure! :)


  20. Hi Zim
    I was wondering if you could do me a favour... You may be aware that my cousin Scruff was missing and has now been sighted with a pack of coyotes. Well, Khyra mentioned that you may be able to help bring him home because you speak coyote. Would you be willing to have a chat to him if we can find out what feeding station he was spotted at? He may have suffered some memory loss.
    Big licks to you
    PeeS - Bark is furry excited that you may be attending Scooby's wedding.

  21. Excellent hiking pictures (though we were looking for our video - grins). But why is it humans always insist on taking us for long hikes before we meet someone new? Something about lowering the excess energy?

  22. Psst...

    Zom, you're supposed to put your siberian skills to work and pull your mom down the hill. That way she has more energy to go back up!
