Greenway trail

In our wash-out of hiking on Sunday, we hiked on the greenway through the Waynesville City Park, which is a pleasant stroll along Richland Creek.  After a few years of drought, all of the rain has really helped in the area, though the creeks are running very full.

The Red Team particularly likes this section of actual white water in the creek.

As headed back toward the car, this guy never flew away, moved, or flinched as The Herd cautiously approached and passed.

    That’s a brave bird. Did any of the Herd woo at it? I would have tried to have a conversation with the bird.

    Boy, we could have used that creek today, it was so warm while we were walking. Did you guys want to jump in?

    The rapids look really cool. Great hike photos. That bird is lucky I wasnt there….or he’d be feathers in my belly.

    I guess it takes more than a Thundering Herd to scare a crow …

    Wow, I don’t know how you do it. Just one husky is more than I can handle most of the time. He’s great though, I can’t imagine life without him.

    I do wish Bandit had a herd though.

    You should have veered to the left…..and at least dipped your feety-feet in the water.

    what wonderful scenery for a walk – we have a house in Pawslyvania and it is all green and pretty there too and the river is high – we got to play in it the weekend

    That’s just beautiful. Is the water too fast for swimming? The dogs look like they are considering it…
