Hunter Mountain, Catskill Forest Preserve, NY
We finded fall! We duss not has fall colors at our howse yet so we drived to the Catskill Mountains in Noo York where they duss has fall colors alreddy in the higher elevashuns. We hiked 11 miles and climbed the second highest mountain in the Catskills, Hunter Mountain, wot is 4,040 feets high!
Furst we woz treated to a beeootiful sunrise when we lefted our howse:
Then we could see the Catskill Mountains where we woz going: (as you can see, there duss not be fall colors here)
Then we gotted there and started climbing high up the mountain:
We founded a break spot fur horsies with a hitching post and barrel of waters but no horsies:
Then we commed to a place where peeples ski - that be sliding down the side of the mountain in the snows but there be no snows yet. When the peeples has to come back to the top to slide down again, they get brunged up in these chair bringer upper thingies. I knows, furry strange. You would neffur in a gabillion years get me in one of those.
This is supposed to be some brandie noo supah fast ski chair bringer upper thingie wot they put in with hellicoptahs a cuppull of weeks ago and it costed 14 million kibbles!
All that ski stuff kind of ugglied the pretty seeniks so we moved on back to natures.
Then we commed to a fire towah. If'n you rememmer wot happened the last time, mom tied me to the bottom, wented up to the 2nd level, gotted skeered and commed back down. So this is wot happened on this hike:
Fortoonately mom maded it to the thurd level this time afore her knees started buckling and she snagged some grate shots from up over the trees. The fire towah is the tippy top of Hunter Mountain so we woz at 4,040 feets high.
Then we commed to a furry kewl break spot with seenik views:
We seened lots of fall flowahs, too:
On our way down the mountain we seened waterfalls:
And I meeted a noo furrend:
Then on the way home we seened this sign and you just knows wheneffur we see this sign mom has to stop and get veggies (BLECH!)
I got to go to the fields with mom while the farm man picked her veggies fresh off of the plants. When mom putted me back in the car, the farm man letted his dog outside. He could not come outside while I woz there coz the man sayed he not be a team player. But he woz crazy gibbing mom all kinds of kissies when he commed outside. I could see it through the car winder. I think he liked mom coz when we woz leaving, he looked at mom like "Where is you going???" Hey, that be my mom, paws off!
So here do be the veggies the farm man pick fur my mom:
And I leave you with this pikshure of the Catskill mountains in the fall:
