Mount Cheese-ha

Great weekend! The good Tigers won (all due to the fact I wore my lucky Auburn collar) and then mom and dad took us to go hiking to Mount Cheese-ha. I was quite pumped...a mountain of CHEESE!! Why haven't we gone there before?? Hmmmm??

We got out, but didn't see any cheese...maybe that's where the trail leads??

The leaves were the color of cheese, so I figured we must be on the right path!

Photo op time with mom! Doesn't Dunc look pretty noble in this photo?? Oh, and please excuse mom's scary ass white legs. I told her to cover those things up!!!

No cheese yet, but more beautiful leaves! The colors were unreal!

Me and my dad. I love climbing rocks with him, which is good, it was a pretty rocky trail...not littered with cheese though...hmmm.....

Okay mom, enough with the scary legs, let's go find cheese!!!

Mom thought this tree was cool...Dunc wanted to pee on it, but we pressed on!

What the crap?? CHEA-HA park?? Not cheese?!?! (This is where we left Cheaha state park and entered the Talladega National Forest) Then what are we walking for?!?!

Oh, this!!!

A scenic overlook that looks over Alabama! Pretty snazzy!

Whoa, that's a far way down. And no hiding cheese...I just had to double check.

Some peoples had been here before and had a fire on the rock!! (Dunc's taking a water break)

Then we heard buzzing and looked at this tree....

Inside that hole on the tree was a wasp nest!! They were flying all around it!

One last look then time to head back.

The trail from the was jungle like. See that thing in the bottom left corner? It's white? Yeah, it was somebody's underpants!! EWWWW! Dad said he wasn't taking that back with us, I was already carrying one of Dunc's poo bags (seriously big bro, poo BEFORE we hit the trail!!). But that was the only trash we saw on the trail...wonder how the underpants got there? Mom said NOT to think about it!

One last photo on the way out, mom and I are both getting tired, but it was a great hike!!

Even though we found no cheese, we did see a lot of other trails we want to try out. It takes about 2 hours to get to the park, so it may be a once a month type thing. I like hiking though...and I wasn't called a wolf this time, but lots of people asked if I was a service dog in training, cause of my backpack. Mom and dad laughed at this. What's so funny???


  1. You could be a cheese service dog..HA! horrible, I know...but I couldn't help myself. Anyway - gorgeous pics and glad you didn't have to carry the undies out. I hadn't realized how beautiful Alabama can be in the fall. Our girls also get pegged as wolves, especially our Husky, Arwen. Kids have called her Balto before. Too funny.

  2. That looks like a wonderful place to hike!! What a gorgeous view and that rock ledge looked like it went way down!! Rock climbing...that is something Holly loves to do very much. Love all of the pictures! Underpants..can only imagine! I guess I wasn't the only one carrying a poo bag this weekend!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  3. Lovely place to hike!
    I get so jealous seeing all our blogger friends with your fall photos it's too bad Malaysia is sunny all year round :(

  4. Hi Anna,

    You sure had a good adventure. Sorry there was no cheese though. My mom says your hike reminds her of the ones she used to take with her big dogs, Rylee and Savannah. Rylee was a black GSD too!


  5. Great hike, Anna, even if there was no cheese to be found. We sure hope Mom and Dad gave you some cheese when you got home. We love going on these hikes with you, for some reason we don't get so tired out:)

  6. Perhaps you could be a security guard to protect the cheese! That's a service!

    I love a good hike, too! Dad's got this crazy idea that we have to go to a different state park every weekend, though. So far we have, but there are some I'd really like to go back to. Dad loved the one we visited this weekend, though, so he might break his rule soon.


    P.S. If you want a pink diva backpack, I got mine from Wolf Packs. You'd better hurry, though, because pink is their special limited edition color this year and when they run out, it's done.

  7. No sweat on the legs - I'm used to seeing them attached to my mom -

    Nice hike even if there wasn't a cheese mountain -

    Thanks fur sharing!

  8. Ewwww. Unnerwears? That be almost as bad as the poopy baby diaper we founded. And wassup with the cheese names? We has Cheesequake Park here and there be no cheese either. False advertisingments, I say. Yup, your moms legs be looking just like my mom's legs. I gess all mom legs look like that.

  9. What a fabulous trail!!! Those fall colors, neat granite(?) boulders and views! Pawsome! We loved your backpack too..water, treats and crackers for the cheese you were splorin' for?

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  10. No cheese? I would have loved a mountain of cheese.. But it looks like a wonderful walk nonetheless!


  11. Those were some beautiful pictures Anna,

    You sure are one lucky pup to go on such great hikes! But I'm thinking.. maybe the cheese was burried? Like treasure! Just be careful that you don't dig up any more underwear... seriously.. yuck!

    Happy Trails,
