Enjoying the Great Outdoors

      Churry and I decided to go on a more scenic walk today.  So, we went with Pat to his biking trails and went on our own little hike.  It was a great experience for her to walk on different terrain, with different smells, and different obstacles to navigate around.

Pat is ready for his ride.  I didn't think she probably wanted to go the distance he goes, so we went our our own walk.

I didn't realize until halfway through our hike that the camera was on black and white, but it's a nice picture anyway.

Taking a rest break.  You can see some of the obstacles we practiced walking around and over in the background.

There were all kinds of unusual "stairs" to stop and sit for.

And we crossed a couple of bridges.

She did very well with her sit and stay in a strange environment.

Down and under on another rest break.

She drank my whole bottle of water on our trip.  It's a good thing I didn't get thirsty!

Made it all the way to the river.

Tired and ready to go home!  This is definitely a place we will enjoy this fall when it's cooler.   Our short hike today was about her limit even with it only being about 81 degrees when we went.    There are many more miles we could explore.
