Today was an absolutely gorgeous day for a hike. Though in truth any day is a "gorgeous day" to go hiking! Especially when you have a fantastic Hiking Buddy like Gracie!
We were on the trail by 08:30 and had the trails completely to ourselves. At least there were no other human trail users. Chipmunks, squirrels, and two large whitetail deer were our companions this day. Gracie chased chipmunks but they were just a bit too quick. The two large doe made better chase prey but they were on the other side of the fence -- sorry Gracie!
Birds serenaded us throughout the hike and witnessed Gracie's athleticism with the frisbee. The open patch in the Pine Upland area was discovered as a great frisbee play area today. I do not know why it had not dawned on me before that it would be a great place to chase the frisbee. It might be even better than the grassy area behind the church because it is more remote.
The peace and solitude of this wonderful little park was greatly appreciated. The companionship of my Trail Buddy was wonderful!
