Have you taken a winter swamp walk? It’s National Walk Your Dog Month, and we decided to check out the trails through the swamp near my Gramma’s house. Everything is snow covered, and there are piles of snow everywhere, especially around the parking lot. One bonus about winter walking is that there are not as many people out and about and we love having trails to ourselves.
Are you ready to put your paws to the snow and hit the trail? I’m ready, so let’s go.
Mom insists on staying on the trails because she says ice on a swamp is not safe. To prove her point, she showed me these spots of open or barely frozen water just off the side of the trail we walked on. Not only is swamp water rather disgusting, it would be super cold to be in at this time of the year.
We love all the cattails along the path. Some of them are still looking like cattails, and others have exploded. Mom would like to take some home for decoration but it probably isn’t allowed.
After a good walk, a girl needs to lie down and rest sometimes. I enjoy the snow and it doesn’t even bother my belly to be on top of the snow.
There is a little stream that runs through the swamp. We come here all times of the year, so we know how it looks in the warm months. The stream has some ice on it, but certainly not enough to be safe for people or dogs.
A winter swamp walk is really enjoyable. We highly recommend it as it is beautiful with all the snow and quite peaceful as well. Where you choose to walk isn’t all that important. What matters is that you get out and walk with your pup.
