SlimDoggy Hikes to Paradise Falls
We’re doing something a little different for FitDog Friday today since we’ve had so many fitness posts during the A to Z Challenge. Jack and Maggie are taking over and presenting a review of their latest hike up to Paradise Falls near our home. Take it away Jack…
Our story is about a hike we took one day last week to Paradise Falls. A really cool place near our house in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. We started out slowly, because Maggie is a slowpoke. I just as soon run, run, run, but Maggie likes to sniff and sniff and sniff. Here’s Maggie catching up.
That’s not to say I don’t stop and sniff as well, of course I do, but it has to be particularly tantalizing when I’m on a trail run like this – take this tree for instance, I think a coyote went by here not long ago and I must investigate.
This is a really fun run for a number of reasons. First, it’s in the woods, so that’s always exciting. Second, there’s water – yes, we do have some water here in California, usually only in the springtime, but this trail has little streams and bridges for us to run over. Maggie likes to take shortcuts through the water sometimes.
But the absolute best part of this run is that dad lets me go off leash as long as I behave myself, so I get to sniff and run and wander to my hearts content and I don’t have to turn around and go get Maggie.
Finally, here’s Maggie pointing the way home.
