Mom and I went to Schulze Lake in the Lebanon Hills Regional Park on Labor Day for a mommy and me walk. Usually if she travels with my sisters, she makes a point to spend some special time with me when she is back home. I always love time alone with my mom.
Lebanon Hills is a huge park area in Eagan. Mom started going there some 30+ years ago with a friend to float on air mattresses on Lake Holland. We’ve been walking around Jensen Lake for years, and now I got to see Schulze Lake. Aside from the beach area, it is a dog friendly place.
Plants And Flowers
Our intention was to find some late summer, early fall flowers. We did find these orange berries that are just beautiful and look exactly like fall, don’t they? Remember, Mom never knows the names of plants so we can’t tell you what they are.
She had me walk in the floating dock and I did it with almost no fear. I think it was impressive. The water is real clear and we saw a lot of little fish in the water. The photo is ugly, but what do you expect from small dark fish in September?
Back to flowers, we found these pretty purple ones just for me, Purple Girl.
Further down the path there were a lot of these mini purple daisy looking things.
The poor yellow flowers look tired. I think their lives are about done for the year.
Tiny, white mini, daisy plants are found all over the trails. They look quite nice still.
A Dog On Logs
It seems like a lot of trees have fallen along the paths, so Mom had me do some log and stump photos for fun.
Here I am balancing on a round log, it isn’t hard at all. I call this photo dog on a log.
Look at my muscles and watch out, timber! I am going to push thing thing over even if it takes me all day.
Our walk was only about forty five minutes, but we had a lot of fun and found some new trails we can visit again another day. Checking out new walking trails is always fun and walking is good for dogs and their humans!
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
