There is always activity on the trail, even when it is cold. Dogs of all sizes and shapes run or walk with their owners. There are runners, walkers, mothers with strollers, dads with strollers, bike riders, and roller bladers. On really nice days, and especially on weekends, you might see all those various forms of getting around on the same afternoon!
Yesterday, Cyrus was especially happy to get back to seeing a few doggie friends. Although the trail was clear, melting snow lined either side causing trickles of water to flow, sometimes forming puddles. Of course Cyrus wanted to walk in the snow with his nose to the ground, smelling the good smells. I was happy to get back to the trail because it gives me time to think. Yesterday I was thinking about ideas for future slices. By the time we got back to the car, Cyrus was a wet and muddy mess, and I had a few writing ideas – a fun and successful outing for both of us!
