The Annual Fall Catskill Hike - Hike #2

OK, sorry to keep you in suspenders.  Here be the second hike of my Catkill hiking extravaganza.
So we gets to hike #2 and OMD, it do be starting at a seenik!
Those do be the Catskill High Peaks ofur there.
It do be where we hiked last year but I had a little bit of a hard time with that Arthur Itis tagging along so this year we went to the western Catskills where the trails do not be so crazy hard.
Did any of yous lose you booty shop appointment card?
So we is off on this hike.  This all used to be an old timey farm so there is old fences and fields and stuffs.
Somebuddy builded this old timey fence out of rawks.
It do go on furefur and efur.
There be old wire fences too and sometimes the wire goes right through a tree becoz the tree growed with the wire inside the trunk!
Stopping for a break.
And a nap.
And a selfie - all matchy in our no-huntin-me oranges!
Then I layed here and watched coz I could see where we parked the hikemobile way ofur yonder ...
... and spied on other peeps up at that seenik.  I watched so they not be messing with my hikemobile.
Now I shows you some pritty fall colors.
So we is off again.
And that, furrends, be my fall foliage hikes in the Catskills.
I hads me a snack in the hikemobile, then...

The Annual Fall Catskill Hike - Hike #1

Here it be furrends, coz I knows yous has been waiting with bacon breath fur it - my ANNUAL FALL CATSKILL HIKE!  WOOWOOWOOWOOWOO!  But it gets even better - you gets two, yes two seenik hikes fur the price of one!  I did TWO hikes yesterday fur a total of 9 miles and I is bopping around here like a youngster today while Mom is all like "Oooo, owie, ouch, yow..." efurry time she gets up out of her chair.  Pawthetic, I tells you.  So grab a snack and a bowl of water and gets comfy coz here we go...
From where we parked the hikemobile we hads to walk up the road a bit to the trail head up ahead.
This little guy wanted to race me, BOL.
Here I is at the trail head.
We has to sign in at the register up ahead in case we gets lost or sumpin so they knows where to look fur us.
Now up, up, up we goes.
I cannot bear to see mom a huffin' and a puffin' up the mountain.  She say it be coz she put on too many layers.
I waits patiently while mom does the hiker striptease.  In the middle of the trail.  Embarrassing.
OK, now that mom has her unnerbritches and stuffs off, we can move upward once more.
We commed out on this mountain meadow with some stuffs.  It be some gizmos that the weather talkers use so they know what to talk about the weather.  I say it be furry sunny, dry and pritty up here and I did not need any gizmos fur that.
A little more away and you can see the mountains better.
Here we comes to Snake Pond on the mountain.
I do not sniff any snakes here.
But wowser, look at the seenik I found and the words!  That be the reservoir down below where we parked the hikemobile.
I say Happy Break Time Fur Me.
Then we went on higher up the mountain were there was big rawks and stuffs.
The trees be all nekkid up here already.
Heading back down by the big rawks.
I wanted to stop by that Snake Pond again on the way back down.
Fur anudder break.
And a seenik nap.
Imagine finding a CATerpillar in the CATskills!
One last look at the seenik before finishing Hike #1.
We signed back out at the trail register (see how mom writed "+1 dog?" That be me!).
Back at the hikemobile, mom got our lunch out of the cooler.  I got chickun baby food on my kibble!  DROOL!
We had lunch down by the reservoir.
Now on to Hike #2.  Stay tooned.

Fugitives, Bears and Bees

OK, so you all knows they has not founded that skeery dude yet what is holed up in the forest where I want to hike in Pencilvania.  Then you heard about the bear attack last Sunday here in Noo Joisey.  Do you know the boy was hiking there at that same place with a furrend?  They got lost on their way so they was late getting there (thank dogness) and a mile in on the trail the pawlice stopped them asking if they seened the missing hiker not knowing what the most tragic outcome of that was until the next day when they seened it in the news.  So where to hike?  Hows about the safety of Noo York?  I mean there is that murderer what was holed up in the one park from deading his daughter-in-law but they nefur founded him and he be long gone so I say, let's go hiking in Noo York.
Whoa!  Hold your leashes!  Say what?!?!?!?  OK, so mom decided that since it be 7:30 in the morning and 51 degrees outside, that it be too cold fur the bees to be swarming and that they be sound asleep still so we could tiptoe through but not go that way coming back when it be warm out and the bees be awake.  It bees a plan!
The bees, they drank all the falling waters, boo!
OK, so we made it off the bee trail safely and did not wake up the bees so now I bees climbing up and up and up.
I climbed above the clouds!  See ofur there, the valley be full of clouds.
And we gots some pritty colors up here, no?
There is those Catskill mountains far, far away.  We be going their fur our annual fall foliage hike pritty soonly.
There be one of those valley clouds peeking up behind me.
Time fur a drink coz it be getting warm out and I had no fur wetting waters in the creeks.
I likes taking me a break where I can see those Catskill mountains.
Come and join me, mom.
OK, we gots to head back now.
You sees that lump up high in the middle on the horizon?  That be High Point monument in Noo Joisey.  I can sees it all the way from Noo York.
So I has to walkie back to the car on the road since those bees bees awake now.  Boring.
I was hawt so mom had to soak my pawsies in my water bowl.  Ahhhhhhh.
