The day was beautiful, perfect for hiking. We brought Abby and Holly, since they missed the last hike to the waterfalls. Ryder came too, because he loves hiking so much. Everyone seemed to enjoy seeing the collies, they received a lot of attention. I lost count of how many people, passing us on the trail, called Ryder by the name "Lassie!" All the children loved him, and many told their parents that they wanted a dog like Ryder. He loved all the attention, so did Abby and Holly.
The first half of the hike is all up hill, so it took us awhile to reach the top. The trail wound through trees, so it was shaded for most of the hike.
We had to take a few breaks along the way, for Abby and Holly...and for me!

Abby and Holly hiked in tandem almost the entire way!
We finally reached the top, where the Lookout Tower is located.
I think the collies enjoyed the day, but they are all sound asleep, exhausted from the hike! This hike was part of our participation in the Parkday 2.0 game. With today's hike, we won two more Bingo's!
