So furstly I start you off with a video of my hike with Kacey, our B&B guest ofur the weekend. But I must warn you: KEEP YOUR PEEPS AWAY FROM YOUR MONITORS! Why? Coz they will be all SQUEEEEEEEEEE when they see Kacey. She be a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and peeps get all gaga ofur her. Sigh.
Then Monday we had to leave Kacey at home coz we woz doing a big 12 mile hike in the mountains and ravines and stuffs and it would have been too hard and too long fur Kacey.
|Here I goes off into the woods.|
|These be trails fur horses but hikers is allowed too. We did not see any horses.|
|It woz dark in here but the pine needles is soft on my paws.|
|Mom wanted me to put this in. It had no pee mail on it so not impawtant to us.|
|Ah, some nice refreshing waters!|
|Check out the mess that Sandy made. These trails just opened up last month after being closed coz of that Sandy.|
|Some pawts is still closed coz the roads is brokened.|
|This be a belted kingfisher and they be loud and noisy. I would get into trouble fur woofing as much as he chatters.|
|Stopping fur chickun jerky reenergizations.|
|Cooling off my paws by the falling waters.|
|So we is hiking along and here do be this turkey snoozing in the middle of the trail!|
|That "gobble-gobble-gobble" be mom trying to talk turkey at the turkey. SOOOO embarrassing!|
|In fact, when mom started gobbling at the turkey, the turkey taked off ....|
|... and hided way up in the tree to get away from the crazy lady!|
|Holy smoked chickun, check out this gargantuous uprooted tree!|

|We could spy on peeps in canoes.|
|And take a break in the shades.|
|Wowser, a whole pond to cool off in.|
How do we keeps from getting lost?
We had a big hiking rule #1 - NO MAP, NO HIKE! Sometimes it be hard to find maps but mom researches and researches and researches (one reason she always be hogging my pooter) so we has a map and a plan and that do keep us from getting lost. Most of the time.
Do we ever get lost?
Never. (That sound be mom snickering in the background.) Sure, we has made a wrong turn or lost the trail coz it fizzles out but we has always found our way back thanks to MY snooter. If'n there be a trail, I can snooter it out so sometimes when mom can't see the trail coz it not be well-defined, she has learned to trust my snooter and follow me coz mom has no sense of direction wotsoefur. Has my snooter efur been wrong? Well, mebbe one or twice.
Do we always follow the red marked trail?
The trails can be different colors or sometimes no colors at all. The map usually tells us wot color we wants to follow. This last hike had no colors just posts at intersections (sometimes) so we had to watch the map closely to know when and where to turn. But us dogs don't see colors like peeps so we has to rely on our snooters. The colors is fur the peeps.
Do we let peeps visit our B&B?
No peeps allowed. Only dogs is allowed, BOL.
