Birthday hike in the woods...

Yesterday was a beautiful, warm Fall day.  So we took the collies on a hike for Abby's birthday.  Today we went to an event called the "Animal Awareness Day Pet Party."  We were going back to watch the rescue dog parade, but it started raining.  I hope it stops so all the vendors don't end up soaking wet!

Pictures from yesterday's hike -





It's a really nice park, we are usually the only ones there, so it's very peaceful.

Now that the cooler Fall weather is here, we hope to visit our trails often, as the leaves are starting to change!

And because it's black and white Sunday...

  1. Such gorgeous photos. And a lovely hike. Your colors are so pretty.

    We keep missing your posts, so we are going to add you to our Google Reader. Thunder thanks you for the good wishes. He is wearing a different collar now but he still isn't too happy.

    1. Thank you! We added you to our list of blogs we follow. But sometimes the list of new blog posts doesn't update. Is Google Reader more reliable? Maybe we will try it...

    1. It was a really nice day. I just found out my surgery has been scheduled for next week. So I am hoping for some nice weather this weekend, so we can get one more hike in - I love Fall hikes with all the beautiful foliage. I don't want to miss it while I am recovering!
