Howdy folks! This weekend Mom took Barney and me on a trip. We got to go see Grandma up in the mountains again. It was a lot different than the last time I was there. THis time no snow.
Mom wanted me to show Barney the ropes of traveling so I was in charge. I showed him all around the big back yard and all of the great trees. I took him hiking up a mountain to the top of a great big waterfall where we could see Lake Tahoe. He did pretty good but I will have to work on his mountain climbing skills with him. He does not have a big jump like I do so we had to help him up the rocks a lot. What a great day out. We met so many nice people.
Mom put a bed in the back of the truck and took us all over the hills to different orchards where we got to go buy goodies and pick fruit. We were on our very best behavior and everyone stopped to pet us.
We even managed to stretch a 5 hour drive home into over 8. Mom likes to stop and read historical markers and visit old historical towns to shop. We even went to a gold mine. Mom took a one hour tour and a nice lady who worked there let us hang around with her at her work station for a little while so we didn't have to wait outside the whole time even though Mom took us to the shade and gave us a bowl of water and chew bones. What great people!
Have I ever said how much I love traveling with Mom? I LOVE IT! Mom's talking about taking another hiking trip again soon before the snow comes. How great is that?! Even if the snow comes it will be great because I love playing in it.
Signing off for now.
