Thanksgiving Day Hike

OK, I owes you all my Thanksgibbing Day hike plus one from before that.  OMD, I is being such a slacker again.  We do the Thanksgibbing Day one furst then later, this year hopefully, I gibs you the other hike.

So on Thanksgibbing Day we went back to that Harriman State Park in Noo York where that murdering guy be hiding out only they be thinking if'n he was not yet deaded, that Hurry-Cane Sandy prolly deaded him.  If'n he was not yet deaded when Sandy commed a callin' he was prolly thinking hims daughter-in-law who he shoosted dead was coming back to haunt him and seek REVENGE!

So all the WANTED posters fur that murdering guy was gone from the park but there be WANTED posters fur a dog wot went missing :(
Check out this big tree wot that Hurry-Cane Sandy knocked down,  There be lots of them around here.
Poor tree.
This one be rooted up.
But those chainsaw massacre peeples has come through and cleared the way...
... so I could make it to the seenik!
Mom brought some of those punkin cranberry cookies along and I nommed them right up.  I did not even spit them out and demand chickun jerky even though mom brought chickun jerky too. 
See - nom, nom, nom, nom...
You has to turn your head sideways here to see the trail blazes wot show us which way to go.
It do be like a war zone here with all these brokened trees.
We made it to the pritty lake...
... where I taked a nap in the sunbeams ...
... and got some belleh rubs.  Sorry, I is totally shameless when mom be gibbing out the belleh rubs.
Bootiful day at the lake.
Even tho it woz furry cold and frosty (brrrrrr) in the early morning, it warmed up nicely so I gots to get my furs wet.
Then I had to climb up rawks...
... to more seeniks.
And more seeniks.
So then coming down the mountain from that last seenik we had to go steep down where that arrow be ofur there.  There was lots of leaves on the ground and they was furry slickery.  I think you all know where I is going with this...  Yes, indeed, mom went SPLAT.  Well, more like THUD and was leaking blood and guts all ofur the place.  I shall spare you the gory visuals of that but I think it be enuff to show you...
... the aftermath.  And wot did I do while mom woz doing surgery on herself?
No worries, mom be OK.  There was more blood and guts than there be holes in her hands so it all be good.  She will live to hike anudder day.

Hiking After Nor'Easter Athena

Furstly, my mom and I would like to thank efurrybuddy fur their most nicest werds about my sis Dixie leaving us fur the Bridge.   It do be different here without her but we is slowly getting used to it.

So you prolly heard that just a week after Hurry-Cane Sandy, No-Easter Athena commed a callin' and dumped about 6 inches of SNOW on us, brrrrrr.  More trees commed down when we still had a mess from Sandy.  Yoda the Dog did say he be sending some chainsaw massacre gangs up to Noo Joisey from Furginia to help clear the trails and that do be so furry pawsome!  So we went hiking back on the Appalachian Trail in Pencilvania yesterday coz Athena did not leave them any snow so their hiking trails be open fur bizziness.
This be a different pawt of the Appalachian Trail in Pencilvania from last week.
We was headed to Pulpit Rawk.
We did has to go on rawks again but it woz not as bad as last time and no rawks put the bitey on me so I did not leak any blood and guts this time.
Now see this ofur here by the observatory?  Do you notice how there be no rawks?  I has to wonner if they dumped all their rawks ofur on the pawt of the trail we hiked last weekend?
Then, ta da!  Here I is at Pulpit Rawk.  But there was fogs down below so the seenik was fuzzy.
Then we turned by this big pile o' rawks coz it showed the way to more seeniks at the Pinnacle!  (I wonner how many sneks be spending the winter in there???)
Here I is at the Pinnacle but there still be fogs down there.
Ooooo!  Entry material fur Anna the GSD's SpectacularTongtacular Contest!
I think mebbe the fog be lifting some.  Let's wait a bit and take a break.
Well, the fog nefur did go away so I gibs you a picture takened on November 8, 2009 when I was here in the same place when there was no fogs.
Oops.  Sandy must has done that.
I went right thru it.  Mom, well, she got stuck, BOL.
So this trail do be all soft and grassy and mossy and stuffs and it was cushy on my paws.
And that trail taked us to a pritty reservoir butt...
When we got back to the car mom found this hitchhiker on her backpack!  It was a furry warm day (65 degrees) and the bugs waked back up and was flying around!
And now I leaves you with some Shawnee Cam shots!
