This Morning's Walk

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  Maggie and I took Mom on a beautiful walk this morning and we thought you all might want to come with us, via some iPhone pix.  Ready to go?  Let's head out!

We walked out to the big road, to get on Hudson Trail over there!  (It's also where yesterday's photo was taken - we love that route!)  Mom asked us to pose before we got started on the trail.

"How's this, Mom?"
"Oooh, I smell the cold front coming!!!"

"I really think we'd best get going before--"
"HEY!  You know what would really be fun?!?"

Yes.  Crazed River Otter Games - right there on the limestone chunks!  I think the smell of the cool air heading our way got to Maggie!

Anyway, we walked the first leg of the trail, then the second.  While on the second, we ran into our friend Dexter the Bichon - he's a real nice, little pup!  Maggie was still a bit whack-a-doo, I mean jazzed up by the cold front potential, so we didn't visit with him very long.  Then, Mom said we could walk the third leg of the trail, too!

"I wonder if Murphy is out?"
"I'll bet he's excited about the impending cold front, too!"

The bad news for us was that he wasn't outside; the good news was that Mom said we could walk the next part of the trail!  We hardly EVER get to do that!

It has lots of hills to it, so at the top of one, Mom asked us to stop and pose.

"OOOH!  LEAF!"
"You need to be faster on the click, Mom!"

Maggie wanted me to add there were tons of leaves blowing all over the place and she tried her best to catch each and every one of them!

Can you see the hill out there, leading to the horizon?

How about now?

There are all kinds of cool turns and hills on that part of the trail!

The whole trail, from where we got on to where it ends, goes through our neighborhood, between backyards.

Still Mags and me - walking very nicely, I might add!

Mom loved seeing the Blue Spruces in this next yard:

"Pretty, Mom!"

They remind her of her maternal grandmother.

When we reached the end of that part of the trail, we saw this:

"What do you think, Mom?"

The trail doesn't actually "end", but it hooks up with another trail system and would have tacked on another couple of miles.  We opted to turn left.

"Look, Mom!  Another hill to climb!"

We did some exploring in that area and tried out one of the new roads they put in.  It ended in a cul-de-sac overlooking Colbert Hills Golf Course!

"Look!  Golfers!"

Maggie was fascinated.

We re-traced, then headed up another hill.

Mom said she was pretty sure the entire walk was uphill - but I'm not sure that's possible.

At the crest of our last hill was our water tower.  We stopped for a quick pose:

"What a GREAT walk!"
"Simply WONDERFUL!"

It was the perfect walk!  Temp at about 70, with a strong breeze trying to pull in the cold front.  We're ready for some water and a round of zoomies - how about you?  Thanks for coming along!

Cammie!

  2. We had a long walk earlier today as Mom was trying to beat the storms. It looks like we may be just on the outside edge of the worst of them, but the night isn't over yet. Ciara is pretty stressed about this stuff, but a good long walk helps.

    Maggie, Lightning is a leaf chaser and pouncer too - good way for him to use up some of that energy:)

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning
