So wif it being a howliday weekend for memorials day, we woz looking for a hike wot did not involve driving on the Garden State Pawkway (that be the way to most of our hikes) coz we would just be sitting there the rest of the howliday weekend in traffiks. So we headed out west to the Black River County Park on I-78 wot had no traffiks and hiked 12 miles. It woz kwite loverly and we woz pleasantly surprised. We did not think the hike would be as nice as it woz. I show you.
Furst we started by the Cooper gristmill where they grinded up wheat, corn and udder grains in the 19th century.
Going down those steps rite there bringed us to the trails wot goes along the Black River:
OMD! Wot is a baftub doing in the middle of the woods?
Mom seened an old foundashun of an old howse up the hill so it must has belonged in that howse a long time ago. The baftub woz only big enuff for half a peeples. Woz peeples tiny back then? I is surprised that baftub has not been snatched up coz I think it do be an anteek wot could be werf some kibble all cleaned up.
So I is telling you, it woz HAWT out today! We did not even knows how hawt until we had to hike just a little way thru full sunbeams.
I sayed to mom to hurry up and get back unner the trees where there be air condishunning:
See, it like a jungle in here...
And the trees is not letting the hawt sunbeams thru... (This would be purrfect for your mom, Lucy!)
We wented thru a tunnel. I woz not skeered.
Then we sat down by the river in the cool breezes and had our snacks. No worries, I woz not nomming on mom's Clif bar. It has apricawts in it, BLECH! I woz hasing my Zuke's treats from my furrend Boris.
Mom nabbed me to show the litters wot we founded afore I could make it to my bed. So I had to snooze by the litters.
Mom, you call this litters? Somebody dropped they nikoteen gums by axident and there be a ribbon and part of a candy wrapper. This not be werth my time so how about I rolls over on it and you gibs me a belleh rub?
And now for the Shawnee Cam!
