This post is part of the new and improved Pet Bloggers Blog Hop hosted by Two Little Cavaliers. This is is a weekly event to help you connect with other Pet Bloggers. Hop on over to see what all your furriends are talking about today.
It was a beautiful morning so JG & I took off to hike a new trail. We went off to the nearby Marshall Hampton Reserve for the first time. The property is over 1,000 acres and used to be a cattle ranch so there’s lots of opportunity for some good scents here.
Today we hiked the 2.5 mile Osprey Overlook Trail that circles around a large man-made lake or “borrow pit”. A borrow pit is where soil has been removed for use in another project, typically road building. Ground water fills up the resulting hole creating a lake.
This is a multi-use trail for both hikers and horses so there’s lots of peemail been left for me to find.
JG loves oak trees so we stopped here for a minute.
This is Caesar’s Weed a very bad plant. It is covered in little fuzzy balls that stick to me like velcro…sometimes they get in my paws and I have to stop to pull them out. When we get home JG has to comb me to get them all out.
We had a wonderful time out here today and will be back soon to check out the other trail, the Acorn Hammock Loop, that winds through a shady oak hammock.
If you’re in the neighborhood come by and we can come out for a hike!
