I had some Friday fun with Mom on the trail at Lebanon Hills Regional Park last Friday! We go walking there a few times a year and always love it! Lately, Mom has been taking either me or my sisters for a special walk on Friday afternoons when she has the time. Since Bailie and Madison got to do barn hunt the week before, it was my turn for fun!
Even though we have been coming here for years, every time is different and interesting! First stop was the portage spot on this side of the lake. It has to be tough canoeing through all the lily pads!
We love all the nice, elevated wood paths they have put in. Years ago, it was always a muddy mess. Mom has been coming here for like thirty years, so she has really seen a lot of changes! The woods is pretty thick, but I had my tick stuff on and we didn’t find a single one on me after our walk! Whew!
My belly was getting a bit hungry, but the waitstaff at the picnic table was nowhere to be seen. I finally gave up on the idea of eating a meal in the woods and settled for the treats Mom brought along for me.
The lily pad situation is out of control on the lake. We don’t know why it is so. There are also a lot of turtles along the edges of the lake, but they jump in the water when the see me coming. Little do they know I’m scared to death of turtles. I bark, howl and carry on to get them to go away.
The park has done a lot of work with all the trees that have fallen down. It is hard to find one lying around as they have mostly been taken away. We are happy they take such good care of the park.
If you are on Facebook you may have seen this photo of me Mom took on our hike. Yes, it was taken on June 30, 2017, and yes, it is me. I am convinced a good diet and lots of exercise keeps a hound girl like me looking like a puppy even at almost eleven years old! I wonder what the walk will be this afternoon or if my sisters will be taking one instead?
