This Week's Thundering Herd Special Features
Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
Beautifully GREEN!! Looks like a wonderful hike!
Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
I’m a new follower of the Saturday Pet Blogger follow, please follow me back.
Thanks, Mr. Monkey
Cue “Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac …
I guess it’s sort of like breaking snow … only with plants! Cool!
Well, if there’s not enough room, clearly Kiska is going to make her own trail.
Oh no…don’t get lost.
Follow that Snowflake!
Happy Friday to ALL of WOO!
That’s OK, so now you get to hike in the jungle. Just watch out for the ticks and stuff.

Going into the rough is most fun!! Mom loves how you keep your hu-dad on leash like that!
I hope you don’t have ticks in your area. I know some people have them, but we are lucky not to. Your trails look like real fun to me 🙂
kiska is making here on trail 😀 BOL

What nice photos! Do you worry about snakes?
Great question! Not a lot of poisonous snakes here (though that trail was the Rattlesnake Lodge Trail), but we commonly see non-poisonous snakes.
Well, Herd, I think that you need to demand that your hu-dad pre-grooms next to the trails that you’re planning to hike!
I love seeing all that green, so lush and beautiful. I couldn’t help but worry about ticks though, because K is so dangerously allergic to them. I’m glad that none of you are allergic to them!
Ticks, fortunately, are virtually unheard of on the higher elevation trails here. You drop down into the Piedmont and Coastal area and they are everywhere (and lots of Lyme Disease in Virginia), but we are blessed to live in a zone without them.
Wooos! Just walk through it all like I do, no need to follow the train exactly , I know where to go!

Do you ever hike with a machete to chop your way through all that vegetation? That sure is a lot of pretty pantyloons on the black and white team! Qannik is so shiny white! Wowzers!
What a lovely trail you all had again! It looks a bit complicated there so please don’t get lost!
