Now is the time to get out on those favorite ski trails...for a hike. I hit our local neighborhood Piedmont ski trails yesterday with Chloe, our psychotic standard poodle. It was great to be out on a familiar trail. But things are a bit different when there's no snow on the ground. Or when you have a dog along.
Yes I let the dog off the leash. She loves running off leash, but right away she's breaking the rules, going the wrong way on a one-way trail!
Turns out the benches are a lot higher when there's no snow on the ground:
And when you get to the end of the trail, it's really hard to take off your boots:
It's hard to believe that in a month, we might be skiing on this trail. But it will be so very nice to have it back the way I'm used to it.
