We went on a hike today!



Mom took me on a long hike today, I knew we were in for it cause she packed a bag that had some treats for me and a big bottle of water. It was a nice sunny day, so we set out walking in the bush, mom kept going down trails and turning around saying ooopps wrong way. Dad was working so we didn't really have any direction. I was getting a little worried that we might not find our way back, so kept turning around to see where we came from.


Finally mom found the right trail the sign posted on the tree said "Trans Canada Trail" the next thing I know we are crossing this big suspension bridge with the water rushing below us. I could have really used a swim right about then but we were way too high! Once across the bridge there was a map that mom stopped to read, we decided we would keep going and try and find one of the lakes that she saw on the map.



Well so much for that, we could only go so far and then it was there....right before my eyes...SNOW!! mom just had her runners on, it didn't matter to me I could have kept going, but she chickened out and said we had to go back. It was ok though because I was getting pretty tired. We had already hiked for an hour and a half, and we had to do the same to get back to the truck.


When we got home I was so tired I drank a big drink out of the hose and then just crashed. Mom said I was a muddy mess, but it didn't matter to me, I was so tired.
It was alot of fun, but I still wish I could have gone for a swim! Oh well summers on its way!

Hi Gizmo! Thanks for sharing your adventures. If you like snow you should be where I am. In Montreal, there hasn't been any grass for a long time. My mom thinks you're a big teddy bear.
