So if'n you has not readed about who Lippe is, you can find out about that here. So fur our hike today, we hiked 12 miles with Lippe on the Appalachian Trail in Noo Joisey! Furst, most impawtantly, we got Lippe decked out in no-hunting-me orange:
We left our howse furry early in the morning when it woz still dark outside:
I woz so eggsited about taking Lippe on a hike that I could not eat my breakfast. So on this hike, part of the Appalachian Trail is elevated boardwalks wot takes you ofur a swamp so you duss not get your paws wet. I thought it woz safer fur Lippe to ride in my backpack like my furend Mario always wants to do so he would not fall off the boardwalk:
We had to go ofur bridges too:
There woz a few skeery moments when bridges had steep stairs like the one above and you knows how skeered I is of stairs, but fur Lippe's sake, I gibbed it my bestest shot, tolded him to hold on tite, holded my bref and ranned up the stairs as fast as I could. There woz benches on the boardwalk where we could take breaks and recoffur from the harrowing stair eggsperiences.
Just when I thought it could not get any worser with the stairs, COW STEPS! OMD! My worstest nitemare! They is rilly steep and skeery and there be cows on the udder side! And we had to go ofur FOUR of them each way - that be EIGHT times!
Fortoonately, these cows did not gib me the stink eye like the ones in Furginia did so I just keeped an eye on them to make sure they, um, stayed away from Lippe. Yeah, that's it.
So then finally we woz at the bottom of Wawayanda Mountain.
To get up Wawayanda Mountain, you has to climb up wot be called "Stairway to Heaven." This I duss not find skeery coz the stairs do be rawks, not wood like wot peeples make wot skeers me. Rawk steps be furry OK with me. I even tried to teach Lippe how to climb rawk stairs.
Finally we gotted to the top but the stairs did not take us all the way to heaven - they taked us to Pinwheel Vista.
We taked a break at Pinwheel Vista. I had Zuke's Powah Bones and Lippe had Zuke's Minis.

Pee Ess - I furgot to menshun that we woz not able to collect acorns fur the woodrats. This hike woz up in northern Noo Joisey where almost all of the leaves has fallened off of the trees alreddy so we could not see any acorns on the ground fur all of the leaves. Boo.
