Big Ridge State Park

Rusty would like to tell you about our adventures yesterday in his most wise pose.

Cheoah would like to be clear that Rusty – her neighbor in the loft of the S-RV – is not wanting anything except his dinner, which is why he was sitting like that and acting so mannerly.

Anyway, we went to Big Ridge State Park north of Knoxville, TN and will probably stay there again tonight – not that we really put much planning into these adventures.  But we hiked one of the trails in the park and came to this view:

Norris Lake

Seems pretty worth it to return and try some more of the park’s trails, but the weather is not looking like it will cooperate.  Forecasts are calling for up to an inch of rain tonight, so we might be doing our best to stay warm and dry.

    That looks like a nice view and I bet the trail was just as nice!

    Gorgeous walking area, guys! Spart Tart couldn’t help but admire how beautiful Cheoah is looking in her house. In fact, Spart Tart thought she was looking in a mirror for a second. It’s nice to have family across the nation. Thanks for sharing your adventures.

    Staying warm and dry is very important. You all can come and share my big bed if you like.

    Hope the rains don’t come as those might be some furry interesting trails – beautiful pic.

    Hope Rusty got his dinner:)

    We’ve decided that the only worthwhile precipitation is snow. Rain is incredibly annoying to any self respecting Siberian. We hope you find a very comfy, dry, and warm hotel room! Nice view though.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
