this past weekend we packed a bag full of snacks and dog treats and loaded up the car for a hike. the hudson valley proved to be as gorgeous as ever and the trees were in full display.
bear mountain state park is a short (and beautiful) drive from new york city filled with dog friendly trails and gorgeous views. ed and i could barely hold a conversation over the crunch crunch of the leaves and sam wiggins could barely contain himself in general.
a thorough tick inspection commenced before stepping into the car, sam wiggins being the main culprit. leg pits! check his leg pits!
followed by apples and peanut butter crackers, a pit-stop at starbucks, and a passed out pup for the ride back home.
