Wall Walking Wednesday

Wall Walking

Despite our warm winter, there are still stretches of the Blue Ridge Parkway that are closed for the winter.

Wall Walking 2

And a closed Parkway makes the perfect walking trails.

Walking Wall

Though a closed road means that you do not run into others, so you have to invent your own games to stay amused.

Wall Walking

A certain red-headed pup is quite adept at finding those unique ways to stay amused.

    I love how Rusty high steps! I get the impression that his gait must be a little different from the rest of The Herd.

    Oh Rusty, you are such a doll! There is nothing like a little Rusty-spirit that we all couldn’t use!! 🙂

    Your herd is gorgeous!

    Two ways to get to where you are going, two choices, and Rusty took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference (with apologies to Robert Frost)

    Just look at how happy he is! Gotta love that pup.

    Play bows,

    Huh. A closed Parkway. Nonesuch thing ever happens here, but I can see how that would be SUPER COOL if it did happen here.

    Rusty always seems to be climbing and inventing things to do. He’s the busy body of your herd, eh?

    Oh Rusty!

    Rusty is definitely a unique “furPerson” in his own right, and me (Ayla) ‘n Ice REALLY think he’s just the greatest!

    How funny!

    Gotta love Rusty. I think he is my favorite. Does he talk?

    Oh Rusty Roo, we love your unique ways…..
