Isn't I the luckiest dog on earth? I gotted to go hiking again today coz it was a howliday (Presidents from the olden days birfdays), mom woz not sore from yesterday's hiking in the deep snows, and mom heared there was not as much snow farther north in Noo York. So off we wented.
See the mountain ahind me? That woz not the way we wented but that woz where we hiked last fall over by Claudius Smith's Den. Today we woz going in the opposite direkshun to Pine Meadow Lake in Harriman State Park. Turns out the snows woz just as deep as where we woz yesterday but... this park is so popular that so many peeples hiked here over the weekend and the trampled down all of the snows. All mom had to do woz put on her YakTrax and we woz good to go! It woz wonnerful hikings, so beeootiful and peaceful with the sounds of running waters nearby. We hiked 10 miles. Keep in mind as you is looking at these pikshurs that anudder big snow storm is coming in tonite. You would never think it by the looks of the bloo skies we had today.
So then we gotted to Pine Meadow Lake and it woz frozened, of course, like all the lakes is rite now.
We wented up this udder trail wot had a rilly steep climb. I had to wait on mom - she woz being very slow. But at the top woz a wonnerful seenik view.
We camed to this old ruin back at the lake where there woz a nice clear spot wif sunbeams and we taked a break there.
On our way back to the car we seened the most fantabulus icysickles!
I knows that looks coldie but no worries about mom and me being cold. As soon as we start moving, espeshully going up a mountain, we is both panting afore you knows it and mom is stowing her jacket away in her backpack even though it mite only be 30 degrees out! As long as we keeps moving, we stays warm. And sometimes I don't even has to be moving. See wot I did in my yard when we gotted home, BOL! The reflekshun of sunbeams off the white snows make them stronger so I gets a better tan.
