We did has to go hiking today on Saturday coz tomorrow do be a nasty rainy day. So we has had this park tucked away fur just such an occashun - when we need a no hunting park on a hunting day. Turns out they changed the rools and there do be hunting now but not on Saturdays so we be good. The furst thing we seened in the pawking lot woz this weird turkey:
Funny. He don't smell like a turkey. Mebbe coz a dog left pee mail here.
You mite has noticed snow on the ground. We did not has any by our howse but when we checked the wevver last nite, it sayed it woz snowing at the park wot we woz going to:
So it woz a little nippy on my paws with the snows and ice but I did not has to wear my insulashun vest coz it do be warming up soonly.
First we commed to an overlook.
Then we went huntin' fur the Leatherman's cave wot is unnerneath the overlook. Not David Letterman's cave, the Leatherman's cave. He be an old geezer wot lived in the 1800's and wore a 60 pound suit all made out of leather all year long. He stayed in caves in the night times. Here do be his story if'n you want to read it - it do be furry interesting.
This be a pikshure of the Leatherman:
Aha, I think I founded it!
This cave duss get the Shawnee Hidey Spot Seal of Approval - furry comfy.
Duss you know who woz here? Martha Stewart. See, she did writed about it here on her bloggie. And I sniffed her on the trail.
So then we commed to Spy Rock where the British troops woz spied on during the Revolushun:
Then the Indian Rock Shelter wot duss not git my Shawnee Hidey Spot Seal of Approval coz, well, there be no hidey spot. Those Indians would has been better off ofur at the Leatherman's place.
This be Dancing Rock where the farmers danced to get warm in the olden days. I is envishunning farmers dancing around in my brain - skeery. You knows, a little hike would has warmed them up just fine and they would not has looked so silly and skeery.
And this be Raven's Rock coz there used to be ravens nesties unnerneath here.
I duss not recommend sitting on that bench coz mom did and almost ended up down there with the ravens. The bench do be brokened and falls ofur when you sit on it.
At one point mom woz futzing with the map and I had no choice but to take a rest while I woz waiting furever and ever and ever...
Then we commed to the last highlight of the hike - the Bear Rock Petroglyph. The Indians is supposed to has carved a bear in the big rock ofur 200 years ago. Can you see it?
I akshually see 2 bears, a deer, a bunny, a mouse and a witch on a broom. Fur real, compare it to the pikshure above and tell me you dussn't see it too.
