Hubby is out of town today and instead of sitting here and wasting my weekend…ie knitting (not that that’s ever a waste but the weather is too nice to spend it inside) I packed up Maggie and my little point and shoot camera and we headed off to The Auburn State Recreation Area for some outdoor fun.
The butterflies were out in mass! Maggie liked chasing their shadows as they flew along.
Maggie really seemed to enjoy all smelling all the things…except big dogs, then she hid behind my legs. The funny thing is that she seemed unfazed by the horses.
Our fist stop was at The Black Hole of Calcutta waterfall. It was an easy walk in that was mostly level and an easy walk on an old railroad bed. Magg’s isn’t much of a water dog but she did dip her toes in.
The wildflowers were blooming along the trail.
We stopped and rested a lot because it was pretty warm even though it was fairly early in the day. Lots of water for both of us and a couple of snacks.
The sky was a deep blue without a cloud in sight. Perfect day for a hike.
