|"I'm ready to roll, Mom."|
"Good to go, Mom."
Mom decided we should head to the Hudson Trail! It sounded like a good idea to us!
Here we are at the entrance to the first leg of the trail:
"Wait. Some-pup's been here ... "
I jumped up on the limestone, while Cammie checked for messages at the base. Here I am on another chunk of limestone:
|"Anyone down there?"|
"Alles klar, Herr Kommissar!"
I think Cammie listens to too much 80s music. Anyway, Mom likes to check down the trail first, to see if anyone is down there. There wasn't, so we hiked all the way to the end of that part. It was fun, but uneventful.
When we got to the next section, Mom said we could hike down there, too!
|"Hey, Cammie! Do you feel like the Beatles?"|
I thought we had a little Abbey Road thing going on there.
I saw some squirrels on that leg of the trail.
|"Hello, little squirrels!"|
You can't see them, but there were two or three of them running around on one of the trees. It was exciting! (Cammie didn't see them; she was staring at some people with baby strollers. She didn't care for the baby strollers, so she stared at them. She's really good at being Head of Security, isn't she?)
When we got to the end of that section of the trail, Mom said we could hike the third part, too!
|"I love this part of the trail!"|
"I do, too!"
We've seen this all over the areas where we walk:
|"Strange. Very strange."|
See that white powder? Odd. Most of the piles don't have a flag by them like that one does. They're on the streets, sidewalks, and trails where we walk. Mom asked a guy who marks utility lines if he knows anything about them and he said they don't mark with white powder, nor do the other utility companies. Mom's afraid it's something that could hurt us if we eat it (and hey, I'm a puppy - the world is my dinner bowl) - have any of you seen things like that where you live?
Anyway - let's move on!
|Me and Cam on the trail|
We love the third part of the trail.
When we got to the next part:
|"Did anyone bring our canteen?"|
"Let's hike the next part, too! It's HILLY!"
We were at the 1-mile mark and Mom was ready to head home. Maybe next time!
|"Look, Mom! The way home is downhill! |
Well ... then it's uphill again ... and more uphill from there ... and ...
Mom says Cam and I are great work-out buddies! We love the walks as much as she does.
Thanks for coming with us! Who's ready to go again?!?
