We recognize that many of you are buried under snow and a deep freeze, but we are in a weird position. You see, the weather has been warm and – brace yourself – rainy for the last couple of weeks. A lot of our snow has melted and, coupled with all of that rain, our normal walking areas are mud pits. We don’t have a problem with that, but apparently the humans prefer not to slog through mud. No we can’t explain their aversion to a good muddy walk, but we have to deal with it.
We had to run errands into Asheville yesterday, so the humans stopped at the Riverlink Greenway that connects the French Broad River and Carrier parks – all run by the City of Asheville. You can start at one park, walk those trails, take the greenway to the other park, walk those trails, and return. In the middle of Carrier Park is the Mellowdrome, which is the old Asheville Motor Speedway – one of the old short tracks of Nascar. If you are interested in its history, you can read a great article about it here.
Anyway, there was no snow and very little mud, but the humans seemed to enjoy it anyway for some reason. So with all of that introduction out of the way, here are some pictures from our walk in the park:
