holds the distinction of being one of the most scenic and muddiest hikes we’ve done lately. It was the kind of mud that squelches and we had to wrench our feet away from the mud because they would sink otherwise.
loves mud and was probably overjoyed that she was actually being asked to walk in it. Oddly enough, we have no photos of her in the mud. Mr. N was not so thrilled. He very gingerly picked his way through. I’m kind of surprised he didn’t get stuck.
When we weren’t looking down at the ground to make sure we didn’t get stuck in the mud, we were gazing around us and appreciating the beauty of nature. And the water, water everywhere.
The hike is about two miles and not strenuous at all. And the waterfall view compensates for any falls in the mud you may have. I didn’t fall this time (last time, I was trying to take a photo and leaned back too much) but Mr. N got stuck in my camera strap and did a roll in the mud once he was untangled.
Mr. N appreciates nature too but more in terms of all the smells it offers. And for “wildlife” photos.
All four of us had a fair amount of mud on us after the hike. Sage had the most of course. What is the dirtiest you’ve been after a hike? Or your dogs?
