This set of steps is the first thing you come to just as you're hitting the walking path that leads up to the castle. We decided not to climb them because we figured they might be slick from all the rain and the hoomans didn't want to fall on their faces!
We met this Lab puppy not too long into the hike! He's SUPPOSED to be on a leash! I guess he can't read the sign! Sorry the picture is blurry. Mitch was trying to say hi and I was lunging at him as he raced past us!
This is the next thing that happened! What can I say? The Lab scared it out of me??!! hehehehe
We had a drink half way up! How convenient!
We're at the top and Mitch is looking for something edible! Quinnipiac University is at the base of Sleeping Giant and lots of students hike up here and bring snacks. You never know what kind of goodies you'll find if you keep your nose to the ground!
I know you're not going to belive this! I had to go again! It's all the good smells, I guess! Mom was beginning to wonder what my problem was!
This is the community water dish at the base of the mountain. Mom always brings the cooler in the truck for us but today she wanted to see if I'd drink out of this dish! Are you nuts? I'm a Princess! This cooty water will never pass my lips! I wonder how many dummies drank out of this bowl before we got here?! Well, Mitch did! haha
This is one of the signs near the watering hole - the one that says you need to be on a leash, Mr. Lab! Do you think maybe we could be jealous?!
This is a map of all the different trails that you can take. You can explore the Giant's head, chest, tummy, knees - there are trails everwhere!
What a great hike we had! Dad says we're coming back next week! yahoooooooooooo
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
Maggie & Mitch
