More hiking!

Backpack
Mom and I took another good hike yesterday!

Ned mot bårsrud
She made me wear the big backpack I’ve inherited from Tara the Airedale and even if it’s a tad big it is much more stable than the little one! Mom says I’ll get one that fits perfectly once I’m all grown up.

We walked over the way we did yesterday, but this time we were determined to find a nearby lake! After a bit of up and down we went down, down, down, down like forever!

But we found it! We walked down the hill on the right, just at the end of the lake where the photo is taken, so pretty steep at the end! Probably not a nice walk unless it’s fairly dry. It was raining when we walked, but the ground was quite dry initially so no problem for us.

All that walking and carrying makes me thirsty! The big water bowl is hard to reach, mom!

Blåmerket vann
We have a system for marking trails here in Norway – pale blue = summer path and red = cross-country ski tracks. You can often walk the red marked tracks in summer – but they can cross marshes and lakes that would be frozen in winter so you’re in no way guaranteed a problem free hike. That’s why we giggled at seeing this blue marked stone in the lake! Someone obviously had fun removing it from its proper location an placing it there.

Mom let me take a break and cool off in the lake!

There was some foamy stuff at the lake shore that I just had to check out.. afterwards mom laughed at me.. no idea why!?

Then we had to get ready to hike back up those hills again!

Up, up, up and more up!

We got home at last, though! All in all we were out perhaps 2,5 hours so it was a decent walkie!

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have a great weekend. Mom says it’s work weekend for her. I thought she promised to spend ALL her time with me from now until University starts in August!? Not fair!

Kisses,
Gummi

One thought on “More hiking!

  1. Wow, that backpack looks really really heavy it’s bulging on both sides. In that last picture I can barely see you under there. I don’t think I could hike very far like that. I sure am glad Mom carries the backpack for us.
