Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  Oh, don't worry - we won't keep you in suspense about the rest of our walk on that really cool part of the Hudson Trail!  It was so beautiful there, so peaceful... that's our Serene Scenery Sunday post!

We were going to break the whole thing into three segments, because Mom took so many pix, but I figured if I cut down on the chit-chat, it wouldn't be too overwhelming.  Right?  Let's get walking!

One great discovery along this part of the trail is this cool border on the ground of wooden railroad ties  - or whatever they're called.

I had fun balancing on those. And had even more fun stepping off them as soon as Mom pointed the iPhone my way. Ha roo roo roo!

In this next shot, Dave said he felt a little bit like one of those Wizard of Oz guys on the Yellow Brick Road:

"Hey, Zim, is that the Emerald City?  Ha woo."

He's tons of fun to walk with!  But I saw something moving in the field to my left.  Mom said we needed to keep going; I made a mental note to check on the way home.

You can tell by this picture just how much I was enjoying our walk:

At some point, we turned around to retrace our steps. And as noted...

"Ha-lloooo?  Is anymousie home?!?"

I just knew there was a little field mouse in there!  Mom said I should just wish the mousie a good day and keep going. I hope he had a serene afternoon!

Mom likes this part of the Trail best:

Not the best shot of me, but Dave and the Trail look great!

"Thanks, Zim!  Let's keep going before Mom gets any crazy ideas!"

Good idea, Dave, but it was already too late - Mom wanted us to "sit and look at the camera".

"SQUIRREL!!!"

I could sit quietly and watch little squirrel friends all day!  No problem!  It's not like I was actually going to look at the camera, though - there was too much going on!

Then Mom asked Davy to sit by me.  He was all mopey, cuz he didn't want to sit, but I had plenty to amuse myself with!

"Oh, Mom..."
"ANOTHER SQUIRREL!"

Then Dave got another one of his better ideas...

"Take down!"

What fun!  A hike on the Trail AND a short but fun wrestling match!

"I wonder where Mom keeps the credit card?"
"Yeah, we've got to order her another pair of new shoes!"

As you can see from the smiles on our faces, we just had a blast!

Thanks for coming with us - we hope these pictures helped you find a little bit of serenity and that all of you get to be hooked up and taken on a nice long adventure today!

Play bows,
Zim
