Today we hiked 12.8 miles, wot is in hawt pink on the map, to The Pinnacle in Hamburg, Pencilvania This map woz in the parking lot where we lefted our car. No worries, we did not writed on the map like Jim, Matt and Nick did. We colored wot we hiked on the pooter.
We camed by some little waterfalls where I could get my paws wet:
Then we climbed up, up, up on the Appalachian Trail to the top of the mountain wot is in the Blue Mountains:
We wanted to go to Hawk Mountain while we woz here but they say "No Dawgs Allowed" coz it is a sankshuary for raptors. So this is as close as we gotted wif Hawk Mountain in the background:
Then we saw some tents - that is the colors you see in the twees. The peeples sleeped in the dark nites by the trail:
Then look wot we seened:
OMD! Somebody had a pawty. But if'n they can haul the heavy beer cans up the mountain, how comes they cannot take the empty beer cans back wif them? Well, I say to those peeples, poo on you! We cleaned up your mess, you, you, you.... LITTER BUGS!
We squished the cans, put them in a poop bag, tied it shut and put it in mom's backpack. Mom still reeked of beer the rest of the way. Oh, wot the udder hikers must has thought!
And then, ta da, we woz, on top of the werld at The Pinnacle!
There woz lots of udder peeples there coz it is a popular place to hike to. But there woz also lots of dawgs. It was like a dawg park on top of the werld!
This is Riley, an 8-year-old Irish Setter. There woz anudder Irish Setter there and they not knowed one anudder. How weird is that? That is a breed we hardly ever see (I had never seened one) and here woz two at the same place on the same day! Riley and I is saying "hello" in prawper doggie style:
Then I sayed hello to this little dawg but I not remembers wot his name woz:
The all of a suddens there woz dawgs all over the place:
This is Penny. She is very speshul coz her mom was saying she woz adopted and woz very sick and they nursed her back to health. Her first owner was putted in jail and not taked good care of her. She had a broken knee and they think she was hitted with somefing. Penny had operashuns to fix her knee and walks fine on it now. Her mom was sad coz she forgotted her camera and wanted to take a pikshur to show Penny maded it to The Pinnacle. Mom told her no worries she would take pikshurs and email them to her. Penny's mom woz very happy bout that. This is Penny and her mom:
So then we headed back to the car. After we drived into Noo Jersey, the boy tooked a pikshur of these hawt air balloons we sawed fwom the car - how kewl!
OK, we is going to email those pikshurs to Penny now. Bai!
