As I mentioned before, the weather was perfect. It was early February, but we always get gorgeous weather for about a week or so, and we picked the right weekend. It was sunny but not hot. The dogs wore coats but we weren't too worried about them getting overheated or too cold.

|Well, hello, there, Kool! Are you ready to go hiking?|
We took a lot of pictures. Chester and Gretel are so used to Jessica taking pictures, they just stand patiently and wait for her.
|"Okay, mom. Whenever you're done, I'm ready to go."|
The scenery and view were great. I thought these trees were pretty cool. I loved all the moss hanging off the branches. It was nice to go on a hike to a new park where we hadn't been before.
The trail map was a little confusing (even for expert adventurer Jessica), so I'm not quite sure which trail we took. I do believe this is Beaver Lake, though. Unfortunately, we didn't see any beavers. I'm not sure what the dogs would have done if we had!
I really love my boys. I love watching them hike. They're just so cute in their matching red sweaters. They are great hikers, but we do have some problems working with the leash doubler. I keep saying I need to get a longer one, but I haven't yet. It might also be nice to get one where you can adjust the length of each side. Swift always pulls Kool along. Although in this picture, it looks like Kool is the one in charge!
|"Come on, Swift! Doesn't that look like a beaver to you?!"|
At first, I thought this water was part of the lake we saw earlier, but looking at the trail map, I'm pretty sure these pictures are of Temple Pond. So beautiful.
