Woofs to all,
Today was a beautiful,warm spring day and Dad treated me to a long hike. We drove to Griggstown in central New Jersey and proceeded to hike along the Raritan canal towpath. The placid waters of the canal are on one side of the path and dense forest on the other. Dad and I hiked a few miles along the towpath then hiked a side trail which led into the dense forest. The trail followed a small side stream and led us to the Millstone River. There were lots of pretty wildflowers here all exuding wonderful fresh spring smells! The temperature soared past 80 degrees today and Dad and I were able to enjoy some swimming as well. We hiked the towpath as far as the 6 mile run wilderness area then left the towpath to hike the trails in the 6 Mile Run area. Dad checked up on a few geocaches that he has hidden here,then we explored the trails in the area. We came upon a secluded beach by the waters of 6 Mile Run where we enjoyed our lunch in warm sunshine! Then some more swimming in 6 Mile Run. On the way home, I stuck my head out of the car window and enjoyed the mild spring air. It was a splendid hike and I was sure a tired pup at day`s end!
Paws,
Wes
