March messiness keeps marching on around my neighborhood. Last weekend, Mom and I stopped for a nice walk along the Minnehaha Creek, but it turned out to be a super muddy walk.
It’s a beautiful area normally with woods and trails, but on Saturday it was more of a mud walk. I don’t mind, but Mom isn’t a fan of super muddy, furry creatures. Nevertheless, we pressed on. There was still lot of ice on the creek, and some of it was safe enough for me to go out, and sit on.
Along the paths, there are lots of benches to rest and put your paws up, or get a better look at what’s going on in the area.
We have lots of walking bridges in our area because of all the creeks and bodies of water. They always make nice photo spots.
At one point, I contemplated taking a dip in the ice cold water, but then decided against it. Mom said I could because I was already wet from all the puddles and mud around. I did take a little drink, which was refreshing. This area is a small rapids with the water flowing over a lot of rock. It is crystal clear, and even Mom said she would almost like to have a drink!
At the end of our little walk, I stopped so Mom could get a shot of my messy furs. Not only do I get wet and muddy, but with these temperatures, the mess also freezes. There is no toweling off, until I defrost a bit. Good thing we have seat covers! I’m sure in a few weeks the mess will be gone. March is the worst month of the year in our minds because it is so messy, and ugly.
