Platt River State Park

Mom dad and I went off to renew our State Park Permit this morning which meant I also got to GO to the State Park. Platt River is one of my favorite places and in a couple of weeks it will be green again. As you can see, it is still pretty brown from winter at the moment. I do think considering it is now officially Spring that they could and take the signs there was not a speck of ice to be seen any where and I checked every where just to make sure!!!! Of coarse the best thing about the state parks is all the great I am checking out something. I don't know what it was but it sure smelled good. We saw deer prints everywhere, so maybe a deer had passed by this bush.

Wow, we walked and walked and then we came to the lake and I must admit I was a bit worried when I saw they saw these things on the water. They kind of reminded me of that killer duck, but mom said these were not ducks, they were geese. They were very very noisy what ever they were and they followed us right around the lake. There are actually cabins that people can rent at this park and they are right near this lake. Mom thinks people come down and feed the geese as they were very friendly. Personally, I didn't trust them......they looked to much like ducks to me.

And then here I am at the top of hill......I was King of Hill!!!! Mom said I look so proud sitting there looking over the whole park. And finally here I am next to my car. Mom got me a nice drink of water and then I flopped on the back seat for a nap all the way home.


  1. We love to see your photos from Platte River - it looks like such an awesome place for a walk! It'll green up there in no time now that spring is officially here!

  2. Our favorite state park is Sleeping Giant and it has the most awesome smells so we know exactly what you're talking about, Reilly! Seeing pictures of your park has us wanting to visit ours! We need to tell mom that we need a hike soon!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. The park sure looks super. We don't have any big parks here, but we do love our dog park.

  6. What a nice park you have there, Reilly. We're looking forward to seeing more pictures when it's all nice and green again :)

  7. Isn't it wonderful to be back at the park? Aren't we lucky to be close to our parks so we can sniff there regularly? You look very handsome on your hill!

  8. Oh wow that looks like fun! I wish I could come. Though the Mum tells me we might go to a place called Dog Camp in September that has a fun lake too!

    Sorry I haven't been around, I haven't read anyone's blogs in too long and I miss everyone!

  9. What a very nice park! You look very handsome posing as King of the hill. I look forward to seeing it back green, I wonder if the sign will be gone then?
    Mum says thanks for the tip about the conditioner.
