Here we are just starting out on the trail. There are sure some great smells!
This is dad and Mitch ahead of us. Sleeping Giant is loaded with Mountain Laurel, Connecticut's state flower, but unfortuately, it's not in bloom just yet! The Laurel's are the bushes with the crooked trunks.
We're almost at the top! Only a few more steps!
Here we are at the top catching our breath before we start the trip back down. This is just outside the castle.
This is the last leg before we get back to the bottom. It normally takes us about 1 1/2 hours to climb the Giant. These steps are actually a recent addition. It was sorta fun watching Mitch try to navigate them seeing as he hasn't done stairs in the house yet!We had a surprise waiting for us at the bottom. Look what mom found and pointed out to us! It's a tennis ball and not only is Mitch hogging all the water but he decided that the ball was his too! That's the tip of my tail in the picture! Mitch is most probably thinking about biting it!
We had a great hike up Sleeping Giant! Both of us can't wait to go back and do it again!
Until next time..................
Love ya lots,
