There do be pritty much snow in the mountains still. Afore the weekend it would has been too deep fur us to hike there but the wevver woz so warm on Saturday and Sunday it melted some of the snows and then frozed it up again so it do be easier to walk on coz we mostly stayed atop the snow. I have builted in claws fur trakshun but mom had to put her claws on. Mom say fur those wot hike in the winter, she highly recommends them. She did not slide or fall on her booty not one single time on the ice! They do be called Kahtoola Microspikes.
Here we commed by Lake Askoti:
So then we comed to where the Hansenclever Mine woz in the 1700's. Where that water is ahind me is wot is left of the main mine opening:
Now here do be where it gets interesting. We woz supposed to make a left turn here but mom noticed the feetprints from the udder peeples started going back the way we camed from. Only one set of prints went in the direkshun we wanted to go. We went to investigate...
Holy Yogi Bear, those do be big bear paws! We decided it not be smart to go in the same direkshun the bear had gone. We had a map and mom saw we could make a rite instead and it would just cut our hike a cupull of miles short. But better do that than go to the bear's turf and disturb him. I mean, there be bears all ofur the woods always and we go where they go all the time but when you know where one went, better not to follow so he not think you be chasing him.
A little while later we did come to a cemetery in the middull of the woods. The grave stones do be from the 1800's. Mom readed that the Boy Scouts take care of the old graves so that is why they has flags and flowahs on them.
Then we commed back around to Lake Skannatati where we lefted our car.
I do be so furry lucky to has a chauffeur so I can rest on the way home.
