I think Spring may have finally arrived here! We have been able to spend a lot of time in the woods exploring trails.
It was a little chilly on this day, hence OMG Becky’s hood and my hair down. My ears were cold!
But other days have been pretty warm. Like last Saturday when we found a new trail that we are in love with!
Too bad it’s only a 1.6 mile loop.
It offers a bit of everything. Hills, rocks, roots, downed trees and water views.
Seriously, how can you not love this?
This hike is when we discovered Stella loves the water. We could not keep her out of it!
We liked the trail so much, we went back to it again the next day. This time OMG Becky’s friend joined us.
The difference this day was the wind. It was strong, creating waves on the lake.
Stella was not a fan. I think they scared her and she did not step a paw in the water. The kids had fun trying to skip rocks.
My sad attempt at a group selfie. #letmetakeaselfie
Have you heard that song? Sassy does a great impression of it that I enjoy much more than the song itself!
We also stopped to visit the bison in the park. It looks like a couple of them may be pregnant. We are hoping to see babies soon!
Don’t worry, there is actually a fence between us and them. ;-)
Monday, it was Sassy’s turn to pick our trail. She loves this one because of the hill at the end. She loves to run it. Yes, she is crazy and I’m pretty sure not related to me.
Two things I really enjoyed about this hike…
First, OMG Becky thought she saw a dead raccoon next to the trail and let out a shriek.
It was a dead raccoon alright. A dead, stuffed raccoon. So dang funny!
The second thing is this selfie. I think it sums up the three of us pretty well.
Me, a smiling fool, taking less than great photos. Sassy enthusiastically, talking non-stop. OMG Becky, the quiet observer. Don’t be fooled though. She alternates between quiet and dramatic queen, but in the best possible way.
It’s been a fantastic week of hikes and I’m ready for more!
How was your week?
What are your weekend plans?
If you could take a picture to portray you, what would it look like?
