Catch Up Post #6-Nature Walk

Me and my roommate were trying to find a fun place to walk the dogs when we stumbled upon a trail that runs next to a river. It feels very secluded and there is lots of trees, birds and other various nature things. We probably walked about 6 miles because we wanted to see where the trail led, but had to give up, it's a very long trail. Along the way we got a lot of pictures because it is very pretty. The dogs did great and slept for a good day and a half afterward (the humans did too)

Part way through the walk we went over the freeway, Picassa handled this one much better than the one a few days before.

The walk also went over the river at one point and I had to get a picture of that.

Picassa is such a short dog, I put her in these white flowers and they nearly came up to her neck.

This is my favorite from the day.

I really like this one as well.

On the way back home we passed a little playground and couldn't resist getting the dogs on the slides.

[Picassa going down the slide. She really liked it and tried to go back up the slide and do it again.]
[Me holding Picassa under one arm (she weighs practically nothing) and climbing up to the slide. Oh the things I do to make my dog happy. . .]
I had to goof around too. I haven't done this since I was little and was curious if I could. I flipped upside down on a bar so that my legs were hooked on.

It was a fun walk and we look forward to doing it more often.

Oh, I love the jordan river walkway! It goes almost the length of the Salt lake valley, so I don't think you could walk it in one day lol.

I agree with Anna. You should submit some of your pictures. They turned out great! :)
