Hike 3: I Got Too High
I saw my first cow. Not as impressive as those Giant Dogs. But don't let the peaceful scene fool you...it was WINDY!!! And this trail walked through fields with no tree protecktion, and at one time mom's hat almost flew off! Brrrr!
We also stopped to tell Mr. and Mrs. Cone "thank you" for allowing us to use their lands. What a beautiful spot to spend forever! I also maked sure there was no zombie activity so that we wouldnt' be suprised by a zombie attack...you never know, Howl-o-ween is close!
We got a little wind break in the woods...mom and I on a rock. I don't know why she needed to have fuzzy paws like me, I didn't think it was that cold!
From a viewpoint you can see the pretty colors and Blowing Rock, the small town we stayed outside of...
About halfway up we found another cool viewpoint. Our cabin was back behind Blowing Rock, I think I'm pretty close!
And then finally we found the top! And what the crap is this thing?!?!?!
Mom and dad said it was a firetower...you can see forever up there or something.
Mom: "See those peoples up there, you can do it!"
And I was like: "Heck yeah!"
Dad: "Who's going to own that fire tower!"
Me: "I am!"
Mom: "Who's a big brave girl!?!"
Me: "I am! Let's do this! Let's show this tower who's boss!!! GAMEFACE!"
So we started up...Oh yeah, take that firetower!
Who's your daddy?!?! I ain't scared of nothing! Look how high....ohhh....
After some gentle prodding and some Zukes PowerBones treats I made it down. What the crap was that?!?! What were you thinking, what kind of parents send their little princess up that DEATH TRAP?!!? Call the ASPCA, HSUS, Matlock, anyone!
In the end, we settled for a nice family photo ON THE GROUND!! It was a great hike, other than mom and dad trying to kill me on the metal death-trap. And their plan worked, between this and my Deer Encounter yesterday, I was konked OUT!
