Mom took me along to run some errands the other day and we stopped for a walk at Nine Mile Creek. Not only did I get some mommy and me time, I got to be the first dog in the family to walk at this place. We have driven by the sign and parking lot many times but never stopped.
The creek is way down below the roadway. There is a nice winding trail down the hill to the creek. They also have a good map of the area so we could decide where to go.
Bridges go back and forth over the creek. They look the same, but are placed in different spots along the water. The stairs to the left of me goes up the hill, but for some reason it was all blocked off.
All the leaves are on the ground, making the trees kind of ugly now. Thankfully, all the leaves on the ground add some color to the area along the creek.
My ears were blowing around like crazy in the wind. It was a cold day and there was a lot of wind. I think being down below was sort of like being in a wind tunnel.
We think people may canoe or kayak here if there is enough water. There are spots all along the way where you can go right down to the water. I did not try to go in because I am not a water dog. The bridge behind me is yet another bridge, not the same one in the other photos.
All in all, our walk along the Nine Mile Creek was not very long, but we enjoyed finding a new spot and I know we will come back again. It’s always fun to find good new walking spots! Walking off some of the food we ate yesterday on Thanksgiving was also a great idea!
