Enjoying the View

Hiking a part of the Mountain to Sea Trail, we found this open area.

What a great view!

    Wow! It almost looks like you could have raised your noses and touched the sky! So, nobody was afraid of heights?

    Wow, what a lush and green view!

    My dogs never seem to have a huge interest in views. But, I just read a book about a couple and their wolf/husky hybrid who befriended a wolf pack and studied their behavior. They stand on ridges to survey for prey. The “watcher” then rounds up the hunters to chase whatever he/she sees. It’s called “Three among the wolves” and I loved it because it combines dog stories and wolf pack behavior.

    Wow, that’s beautiful! We don’t have views like that in the midwest …sigh. Just a lot of flatness.

    Your pal, Pip

    We’ve tried to leave two comments and don’t know if they’ve gotten through because we don’t see them. We totally agree with you that you guys found a Marvelous viewpoint. Grammy would never be able to hike up in a place like that any more, but she sure loves looking at your pictures!

  21. Country Corgi Pups on July 8, 2010 at 6:22 am

    Did our comment go through? It doesn’t look like it did unless you moderate…

  22. Country Corgi Pups on July 8, 2010 at 6:21 am

    THAT is TRULY a WONDERFUL VIEW!!! There is no way Grammy would be able to hike way up there and she wouldn’t get anywhere near that close to a drop off either, but the view IS spectacular!

  23. Kess & Her Mama on July 8, 2010 at 3:15 am

    What a lovely walk. Guess you guys have no fear of heights!

  24. Marvin on July 8, 2010 at 1:31 am

    No wonder you were enjoying such a beautiful view!

    Thank you for sharing. We feel as if we are really with you! ;0D
