We hiked 13.5 miles at Harriman State Park in Noo York today but we parked in Kakiat County Park and walked through that park furst over their kewl little bridge.
Of course we had the usual seenik overlooks
This overlook be icky tho coz there is lots of elektrisity stuff in it:
And I had to engage the doggy four paw drive to get up some of these rawks:
The bugs woz kwite annoying and I woz hasing to thwock at them wif my paws:
Mom catched me nomming on something and I had to spit it out coz she tolded me to DROP IT. We dussn't know wot it is. Mebbe a snake skin. Shore woz nommy tho. But mom made me leave it there. Meanie.
And did you notice I does not has my backpack on? Mom warshed it and forgotted to put it back in the car. My nifty pop-up bowl for waters is in the pawket so I did not has that either and had to drink out of a plastic bag. I could has suffocated in there!
Then we ranned into this man wot is called a trail maintainer. He volunteers to build and maintain the trails so that we can hike on them. Trails don't be happening all by themselves - peeples volunteer to adopt a sekshun to keep it clear for hiking. And this volunteer man gibbed the best butt skritches:
So we rilly appreshiate that these peeples werk on the trails to we can hike on them. We does our share by being memmers of the NY/NJ Trail Conference and paying memmership doos to support them and by picking up the litters when we hike. If'n we don't pick up the litters then the trail maintainers has to and it be that much less they has to do coz they alreddy does lots. So here is the litters we nabbed today: (I put Sydney and Dixie on litter dooty when I gotted home - I think it only fair so I can go nap.)
We has been seeing lots of pritty flowahs on the trails now. The furst one is mountain laurel. I dunno wot the udders is called but if'n you knows, let me know so I know when I see them again.
And now, wot you has all been waiting for.... Ta da ta da ta da.... The Shawnee Cam! Keep in mind it woz hawt and I woz hazing to drink out of that plastic bag so you will get a "never before seen" unnerside view on my tung, complete wif foamy slobbers at times.
Here bees a good slimy foamy one:
Now for this seenik overlook, tilt you hed to the rite. A little more. A little more. 'K, now the pikshur should be strate:
Here is an akshun shot of mom's legs:
And here is the whole mom rilly teeny tiny:
