Happy Flower Friday hosted by ME, Arty, filling in for the
sleeping vacationing host, Dory!
Don't worry, Dory will be back next week
because I am done dressing up like a girl with See Beautiful, Flower Friday!
Today I want to tell you all about the TWO hikes I got to take for my birthday!!
The first hike along the Elk River in South Eureka, just 10 miles or so from our house.
This was the first hike where I got to see Redwood Trees
...OMD...they are humungous!!!
There was a cool stream, just right for sticking my pawsies in.
Mama said it was too chilly to go swimming though.
I couldn't believe all of the peemail!
Not just doggies either, here I am reading a pretty racy love letter from a raccoon to a skunk!!
There were itty bitty pretty flowers....
..and a great big buttie-pillar (pre-buttie and all pillar)!!
Mama says she is going crazy trying to figure out what kind it is!
...Maybe Princess Leah or her Daddy know?
Just look at these pretty daisies...they were blooming everywhere!!!
The Foxglove is starting to bloom too....isn't it purdy??!!
Mama and I had a great time at the Elk River Trail....and even saw this covered bridge on the way home.
On Sunday (my actual Birthday, Day) I got to go for a hike with not only Mama but....
Just the three of us went to hike the Trillium Falls trail just north of Orick, CA about 20 miles north of our house!!!
This trail was a bit longer with more uppy and downy hills. We made sure to take lots of breaks and stay hydrated so
Mama we wouldn't get too tired...
There were lots of trees dating back to prehistoric times. Believe it or not, they are even older than MAMA!!
There weren't as many flowers on this trail because there was so much shade, but I found this little yellow Monkey Flower.
Here is Trillium Falls and yet another stream I COULD NOT go swimming in because Mama said it was too chilly...
(you can tell I was not too happy!)
|Great big tree..itty bitty Daddy and Arty|
Sometimes it nice to have some alone hiking time with Daddy and Mama...
Thanks so much for joining me for The Hiking Edition of Flower Friday!
I hope to bring you a few more of my hikes this summer, as long as I don't have to wear anymore dresses for awhile!!
