Hiking Day 2: Not So Creepy Trail and Camo-Flage

So hiking day two was an interesting day! It was mom's birthday!!! So I woke her up with slobbery kisses and said let's go! But man, it was cooooolllld outside that day. It was kinda raining at the cabin, but mom said "let's go to the Cascades/Mountain to See Trail" for a quick outing before our Auburn Tigers played!

While we were driving, you know what? That rain stuff turned to SNOW!!! Mom and dad were giddy over it. I was like "Ahem, let's go!! Trails people!" Gah!

So we got to the trail and it was windy! But I got some refreshments before starting off.

Duncan isn't a big fan of getting his feet wet....loser!

This is the same trail LAST was all foggy and SPOOKY and weird...this year it was.... 

Still a little creepy, but not so bad. All the dead piney trees were still there, but without the fog it wasn't near as spooky. 

What? You want me to go in there by myself?'s not that scary...... 

Whew, not too scary! And since this trail is BARELY used I got to go off leash. Ahh...freedom. But a few times those dead piney trees made noise in the wind like "CREEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKK" and "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" so I'd run back to mom...just to make sure she was know...she was scared not me the big bad German Shepherd....

I'm glad we made the hike...the views were beautyful!

When we got back, mom and dad had time to kill before the game, so we walked around the property, I thought I'd play hide-go-seek from them...

But somehow they kept finding me....

 Ah-ha! My no huntin' me vest!!! No wonder I can't hide (I'm sure it had nothing to do with my giant ears!).

Did you hear that!?! I heard gunshot! Good thing I'm wearing my vest so no one thinks I'm a wild critter for nomming or putting on a wall.  

 Oh, and it's waterproof!

That's it for Day two. Auburn won, cause it was mom's b'day and all! No tomorrow...tomorrow is interesting. I'm working on my artist renditioning of one of the events that happend, cause it happened so fast mom didn't have a camera!!!


  1. You look so gorgeous in that bright orange vest, Anna - it is a great color against your black furs!!! Fun hike too, although we would never get the chance to go off leash:(

  6. I know how you Shepherds have to keep doing head counts. I'm sure that's all you were doing out there in the scary woods! I sure wish Morgan and I had been with you! Your orange vest looks fabulous, too. Anna, you could wear a burlap bag and make it look good!
