Happy Noo Year! Of course, I had to start 2010 out with wot else, a hike! It snowed yesterday. The snows woz mostly gone by our house this morning but we figgered there would be more snows up north. We headed north but to little mountains at the Ramapo Valley Reservashun, not big mountains like last time. Shure enuff, there woz about 1-2 inches of snow at this park. Now I has to point somefing out. Peeples shore does need lots of stuffs to go hiking in the snows. Us dogs, we need nothin. Our paws is designed for this kind of wevver and donnot be thinking I is going to wear booties coz it is not happening. Allow me to demonstrate my point:
Thank goodness mom invested in her winter hiking gear so she can take me hiking in the snows! I think I should has some extra noms for all the monies I is saving mom since I does not need all that gear.
So anyways, first we headed up to a seenik overlook wot is called Hawk Rock and it woz kwite loverly:
Then I found somedog had lefted me some p-mail in the middle of the woods:
Oh, here is who the p-mail woz from! Two Bernese Mountain Dogs wot woz hiking with their dad. How kewl, mountain dogs in the mountains!
Then we camed to a remote trail where no man, woman or dawg had gone afore... Only mom and my paw prints woz in the snow:
We crossed over some beeootiful little streams. Of course mom slided in again, this time on her behind and she sayed a werd I cannot repeat. She woz surprised she did not get soaking wet. It pays to has the rite hiking clothes when you is peeples and not a dawg.
Then we camed to Bear Swamp Lake and hiked almost all the way around.
The lake woz frozened and there woz a nice part with Chrissmuss trees.
We sawed anudder deer! Can you see the deer in the pikshur?
So we told the deer not to walk over into anudder park coz this park is a safe no huntin me park. But there are parks all around this one where there is huntings.
So we hiked 7.5 miles today. It woz a good thigh werkout in all that snow!
Pee Ess: Wanted to menshun also that since I started keeping track of my hikes with my bloggie, in 2009 (since beginning of June) we did 35 hikes for a total of 333 miles!
