Vermont, Day 2

Yesterday we decided to take the trail up Fall Mountain (across the river in New Hampshire). Now, it's not a REAL mountain. It's really a big hill (at about 880 ft), but it's still a pretty steep trail, especially for me. We took it slow and stopped frequently as I have asthma and it was a rough trip up at times. But other than that it was quite ok. The trail is nice in that it starts out steep and then flattens out a bit at the top. Dahlia had a blast on the way up, checking everything out and trotting on out ahead of us. She explored out into the woods a bit but always stuck close to us. We got to the top (something known as Table Rock, which the locals have been calling it for ages) and the view was SO worth the climb! We spent a good 45 minutes or so on the top, taking pictures and just relaxing. The way back down was pretty easy, though Dahlia must have been tired as she stopped and laid down several times. We ran into a nice couple on their way up. Rather than leash Dahlia up, I told her to stay and she froze in her tracks (good girl!). The couple love dogs though so I let her go up to them. Turned out they had a 15 1/2 year old Shepherd mix they used to hike with but he was too old to do it now. Later on down the trail we ran into a family from Michigan who were heading up. It was nice to see some folks and their kids out there. They were all enthralled with Dahlia and gave her plenty of ear scratches and hugs and chin scritches. She eventually just flopped own on her side in front of them waiting for her belly rub. Silly girl! They were just amazed at her sweet temperament. I think the family would have taken her home if they could have! lol

Dahlia, do you want to go hike up a mountain?

For anyone wondering how many spots she has on her tongue, this pic ought to clear it up.

Are you sure those are bees? They look like the wasps we have around here (and I hate the damn things).

I think they're Yellow jackets...they look like this one I think. They looked smaller than the wasps I've seen. I could be wrong though -- I'm no expert on bees and wasps!
