Sleeping Giant in December

Guess where we went on Tuesday?     It was 60 degrees and breezy as we hiked up Sleeping Giant!

 I was so excited to be here that I practically pulled mom the entire way!
Molly has been to The Giant twice before so this is only her third time. 
We sure did find some awesome smells.   Mom said that the Aire smelled especially clean and fragrant~

Mom and dad both agreed before we got out of our car that we would only go so far so we wouldn't tire me out.   I don't have the same muscle mass in my body that I used to have, thanks to the prednisone, although I did get another 10 mg taper while mom was in Florida.
Hurry it up - step up the pace!
Mom predicted that I would only get to about this far and then be turning back.   This marker seems to be about the halfway point from the bottom to the castle at the top.  
I see the castle!

We made it!   Mom was wrong!   Check out dad's shirt.  Is that cool or what!

Ready to head down?   I'll race you, Mitch!
We sure did have one fun afternoon!
 Down the steps we go!
Can we do this again soon?   Pretty please!
Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Hooray! What an achievement! I love to read about The Sleeping Giant. If I lived nearby, Penny and I would hike it also, just because I love the name. And that swan shirt is great. (I think you need a black swan one to match.)
