Starting out the hike. "Ladies I'm here!"
Heading towards the woods
Taking a water break at the bench in the meadow
I will pee on some of these flowers for the lady coyotes
Since most of my pictures look like this one I'm going to let Mommy put up two of hers so you can see what this hike looks like if you aren't interested in sniffing the ground
There is a lake in the middle of the preserve. Usually it is much bigger and full of geese and swans and stuff, but again, the drought has changed things.
This is the high scrub area. That tree is not a short squat tree, that is a normal sapling being blown sideways by the wind because it wasn't just breezy today, it was very windy. Wind speeds were up to 25 mph.
Anyway, it took us two and a half hours to hike the 3.1 miles which is very slow even for me these days, I drank about half of the water Mommy carried on the hike and then needed the whole little Igloo water jug full of water when we got to the car, but I left a whole lot of pee behind for those lady coyotes to admire.
