Stonetown Circular Hike, NJ

So today we hiked the Stonetown Circular Trail wot is a 10 mile trail in a loop.  It do be the hardest hike in Noo Joisey coz it goes up and down FOUR mountains!  We sure is tired after this hike!  We almost did not finish it coz I woz limping with my front leg early on.  Mom gibbed it a massage then it woz better and I woz able to do the whole hike.  Now I is not limping at all.  Mebbe I just sleeped on if funny last night.
So as we woz climbing up the furst mountain, Windbeam Mountain, I founded this thingie wot looked like a knob off a stove.  Wot woz that doing up here?
A little farther up the mountain we seened lots of burnted up trees...
So mom figgered there must has been a fire and that woz a part from fire ekwipment wot a fire fighter must has dropped.  When we gotted home mom googled it and sure enuff, just two months ago in August there woz a fire on Windbeam Mountain and we had not heard of that one.  So mom mite call them in the morning to see if'n they want their knob back and the postal man can bring it to them.

So here is wot it looked like at the pritty part from Windbeam Mountain where there be no fires.
And we also capshured some sunbeams:
I rested in a bed of leaves coz almost all of the leaves be fallened down alreddy.  Mom is glad we dussn't has to rake these up.  They can stay on the forest floor furever:
And here be some pritty forest I hiked thru:
We had to climb down these Tory Rocks.  In the olden days during the Revolushonary War the Tory soldiers did hide in these rawks:
And we seened some not so pritty things.  I wonner how these beatened up crashed cars gotted in the middull of the woods?
OK, some more pritties to get the uglies out of our branes:
And then at the end of the hike as we woz walking on a road back to our car, we seened a haunted howse, you know, with it being Howloween today and all...
Driving home we seened a gabillion ghosts and goblins walking along the roads.  It woz skeery.  I did stay down low in the back seat of the car all the way home.

And thank you all fur your kind werds about the mean commenty I gotted yesterday.  I do ♥ LUB ♥ all of my bloggie furrends - you guys is the bestest!


  1. That looks so pritty wiv all da leafs an efurrything, but you'z right abowt those cars. That iz so odd how they gets their izn't it? I'm glad you had a good time, happy Halloween!

  2. Oh, you look like Red Riding Hood walking through the forest! I especially like that picture of you walking through the trees with the sun shining on you.

    Isn't it funny how even though there was a forest fire not so long ago, green stuff is already growing back. I hope it wasn't a very big fire. As for those crashed cars, don't you just wonder and wonder about that stuff and how it got there?

    Guess you couldn't carry out the junk litter cars? They did look heavy, so you get a pass! Wonder how did they get there? ALIENS?!?!

  12. What a mysterious Halloween hike! The knob and the cars...clues? Haha! Glad you made it home through all the scariness. I know Nyxie would've been riding low, too ;)

  13. That's really cool that you sniffed out the knob and very sweet of your Mommy to get it back to it's rightful owner. Thanks for the pretty pictures.

  15. Looks like you had another great hike. I wonder what that knob is. Those ghosts and monsters all carry bags full of forbidden goodies. It is fun to stick your head out the door and try to grab some.

  16. Wow -- another forest fire? That's so sad. The poor animals!

    Thanks for such great, awesome, and pretty photos. Those cars in the woods are strange!
