Mini Hike

To make up for the lack of hiking this weekend, I took the girls to the Scenic Dog Park.  It is almost like a hike!  :)  I really miss Popson Park - damn rattlesnakes.

Scenic is steep, hot and has no water for the girls to run in.  Coulee spent the second half of our walk running ahead to find shady patches to lay down in.  It is the only sign of age I've really seen in her.  She can still run forever, but not when she is hot.

Lacey donned her backpack for the walk.  It carries a litre of water and was perfect for our needs.  And besides, she is so darn cute in it!

And it doesn't seem to slow her down much either.

I'm really loving these backpacks.  I've always struggled with carrying water and the camera. In the past it has been one or the other as  really don't want the two things in the same bag, but I really can't carry two bags comfortably. So the packs are perfect.  And the dogs really don't seem to mind them at all.
