We returned to our regularly scheduled hikes on Wednesday after a very enjoyable long weekend. Vancouver greeted us with a perfect day for hiking. Cool, with a splash of water on the ground. Our pack was happy to make the most of the day.
Our band of merry adventurers included Bailey the Golden Retriever, Beckem and Logan the Goldendoodles, Emma the Border Collie, Nila the Desi Dog and Maddy the Hound / Shepherd mix.
This group is high energy! They love playing chase. It’s quite common for two dogs to start playing then shortly after everyone is in on the chase. After a little while the dogs settle into a stroll (except Logan, Emma and Nila, they LOVE to run). While little bells jingled, the sun peeked its way through the canopy while we breathed air that was thick with mist evaporating off the moss covered trees. Perfection.
It appears my GPS unit was not functioning perfectly however. The map has us wandering through some people’s backyards. That certainly was not the case.
