Actually 2 hikes, not 1. I got up early this morning and went to the park with my camera so I could hopefully get a few deer pics and I went a bit too early; the sun was just starting to peek over the hills so it was still pretty dark in the woods but I did manage to get a few shots. Then I went home, took Mocha to the vet to get her monthly allergy shot and get blood drawn for her Jr. wellness check, and she and I headed to the park for a nice long hike. We got there around 10 and the parking lot was full; I thought back to the time when there was no way I would have taken her on the trails with so many people and dogs present but that was then, this is now
First, some iPhone pics from my hike with Mocha:
Gorgeous fall day!
The usual suspects hanging out on the log
Mocha making sure there aren't any vicious deer waiting to waylay us as we cross the bridge
Everything smells better in the fall
Taking a breather
The park added 33 acres a while back but we never explored it because it meant going through some thick brush and a grassy area and I tend to attract ticks like a magnet but this morning we took a right and checked it out. Nice path through the woods
The path ends up in this big meadow
Grass as far as the eye can see!
One more sniff before we head home
And here are a few of the pics I took with my camera early this morning
An early morning hiker
Bridge in the mist
And, a few deer that I found
Thanks for looking!
