I chose to do a repeat hike of hiking south from the PA 873 trailhead on the Appalachian Trail, with excursions onto the "North Trail" and "South Trail" (aka, really really rocky trail.)
|As usual my good boy gets to be off leash while the bad girls stay tethered.|
|Before long, we hit Rock.|
|"Dog beds, bah!"|
|Back to the woods...|
|The dogs had a whole lot to say about this!|
|Leaving the woods....almost back to the car.|
|And back across the river!|
I don't think any photo can capture how absolutely stunning yesterday was. The weather was perfect, this hike offers a lot of interesting sights and physical challenge (hello, uphill!). As ever, there are lots more photos on Flickr.
We did not escape unscathed - poor Ein had a limp when we got home. I thought it was his eight year old joints worn out from the long and rocky hike, but it was actually a skinned paw pad. My dogs have way too much trouble with that! It is definitely one of our more infuriating issues.
