We had the MOST beautiful morning, the sun was shining, it was cool and there was a nice breeze blowing so off we went to the Platt River State Park to have a wander through the forest. I can not even begin to tell you how many pawsome smells there were. Here I am at the start of our walk - (remember you can click on the photos to see them bigger) we crossed 7 bridges in total and I check every one for trolls - but I didn't see any. There was water flowing under all of them though so maybe they got washed away in the last rain we had. We have been to this park many times before but mom says she has never seen it looking so beautiful.
We finally came to mom's favorite place. It is a very small waterfall (about 4 foot high) that the water runs over. It has just a slow trickle over it but it sounds so pretty. Mom tried her best to get me to dip my toes in the cold water - but I was not having any of that. I planted my paws and refused....looking from a distance was just fine. I even tried hiding behind this grass so mom couldn't see me....I thought it was a good hiding spot.
We walked and walked and followed paths up and down and around trees and I must admit I wondered if mom knew where she was going, but yes eventually we came out at a very big river. First I had to check out the strange things that were blocking our path. It looked like a big metal snake but mom said if was railway line and it would be okay to cross after we checked there were no trains coming. This is of coarse the Platt River and it is quite shallow but flows fast. We were just enjoying the quiet when we suddenly heard a loud loud noise and around the bend came an airboat - like you see in Florida. I didn't like that and all and barked loudly to tell them to go away. After our walk in the park we also went to see a Craft Faire. There wasn't a lot there and what few items we looked at were very expensive. Needless to say I snoozed all the way home.
Mom couldn't resist making another video so here is a bit of out walk for to enjoy. You can see me checking for the trolls and if you have the volume up you can hear the birds.
