Road Trip Hike #2: High Bridge Trail State Park, VA

On this day we be going to High Bridge Trail State Park in Furginia.  It be an easy peasy trail fur dogs and peeps in wheelchairs.
Cruising along.
At the bridge there be an old timey picture of what the bridge looked like in the olden days.
I hads to check it out from the side.
It be looking good to me so off we go.
There is these rest areas off to the side.
Giving this a thorough sniff.
Say what?  Pee mail on the bridge?
I gets to see more seeniks than mom because I is shorter.  Mom hads to stand on her tippy toes to see.
Or use this eyeball extender contraption.
Hiking in the tree tops.
We was so high up in the trees that we be up with the birds.
On the other side of the bridge, more resting places.
We be heading back ofur the bridge the other way now.
That be the Appomattox River down there.
Me and mom's shadows.
There sure was a lot of birds up here in the tree tops.
Off the bridge now and on my way back to the car.
But furst sniffing me some pee mail on the old timey post.
So we drived back to my cabin, mom gived me my Arthur Itis medicines and some Tramadol fur aches and pains because I is overdoing it on this trip, turned on the air conditionings, closed the blinds and then I was out cold until hours later....
"Hey mom, was you out hiking without me?  You wouldn't do that, would you?  Did I dream it?
I has one more adventure to tells you about.  Only 3 hikes fur me this trip because I is not a young pup any more.

  2. Wow, that's some bridge you went over. I love your little booties that you wear, I'm sure that helps your paws feel comfortable. I can't wait to see more of your adventure! Also, I appreciate the bird pictures, very cute.

  3. I think you are very brave, S. Across bridges, through streams, up steps, and over trees - you just keep on going! You and your mom are a great team. Sometimes I'm afraid of the hallway at my new apartment!

    Love and licks,
