We went yesterday and went on the Volksmarch trail (10K). It was a bit longer than I'd expected and towards the end I wasn't enjoying it anymore. But I'm also not feeling 100%. I keep saying I'm not sick...it's allergies...but who knows. We packed a bunch of things (extra collars and a leash...and some of the stuff mentioned above).
The dogs did well, I was nervous about meeting other dogs...especially off leash ones but we saw none. I'm glad too because some times the trail was really narrow and I don't know what we would've done with Trooper.
We did a tick check when we got to the truck and then another when we got home. Everyone looks good...but while driving home I did find one crawling on the visor-weird.
Anyhow-on to the pictures-the best part!
On some of the trail there were still burning pieces of wood...it felt...erie. But you could tell it was an intentional burn as the trail was always clear.
