We had set out to do a completely different trail but the road we needed to get there was closed so we just randomly picked anudder trail off the map wot we could get to in the car. We dinnot noes until we got started hiking that we was on the Appalachian Trail! We could has hiked all the way to Georgia but instead we hiked 11 miles.
At first there was lots of pritty flowers along the trail...
Then some pritty scenery in the distance...
Then all of a sudden... Wot is this? Does a gnome live here in the middle of the woods wot gets mails? We looked at it closer and it had notepads and pens inside. (Yes, we was being nosy and snooped inside the mailbox but mom putted everyfing back the way it woz.) We think this is so peeples who hike the whole Appalachian Trail can leave messidges.
Then the trail got steeper and there was lots of rawks...
See me up in the top rite corner? I is saying "Common mom! Wot is taking you so long? I has 4 legs to get up this mountain and you only has two. Step it up. Feel the burn!"
But it was so worf it coz when we gotted to the top, look at the amazing view! It took our brefs away.
I nowed not to step on those rawks coz if I falled off the udder side, I would has gone boom way down the side of the mountain wot we had just climbed. It was beeootiful and we sat there for a while to rest. Mom tooked a video of the birds of prey wot was flying around. The moovie is not very good coz mom could not see the pikshur on the camera the way the sun was shining on it so she never knowed if a bird was in the moovie or not. But listen to wot the winds sounded like up there. It was pawsome.
There was some waterfalls where I could get my furs wet but no waters deep enuff for swimming.
Then, just as we was getting off at our exit going home, we sawed this truck. Mom did not have time to get a good pikshur but on the back of the truck it sayed "Caution: Working Border Collies" and on the side of the truck it sayed "The Geese Police". I suppose some dawgs has to werk for a living. I just gets to play and has funs :)
