Trail running with our European Doberman Lily again! This happened back in the beginning of June, but I haven't had a chance to do a blog post about it until now. We went to Chattahoochee Bend State Park.
Parking was only $5 so that was really nice! One of the hard parts about picking new trails is having trouble navigating when parts fo the path are overgrown. We were supposed to end at the Chattahoochee river and then head back out on the same trail. I think we missed a turn somewhere early on, because eventually we stopped seeing trail markers and the trail became totally overgrown were I was confident we had missed the turn. We still had a great time, and the weather was excellent
Lily got to meet a very nice park ranger! He said that they had been slammed, and on the weekends were having to turn people away at about 2pm because the park was getting too full. He said even the weekdays were usually really busy, but it was just him and I in the big picnic/boat ramp parking lot, and he said he wasn't sure why it wasn't busier. Fine by Lily and I though! We love having the trail to ourselves!
Lily did not enjoy getting into the river. Novella is our family's big swimmer, but being pregnant at the time she's not headed out on any runs until after pups are gone. With all the turmoil going on in the world, it has been so nice to be able to head out to nature and relieve some stress.
The park has a bunch of trails, so we may head back out and just see where the trail takes us and not having a set path.
See you on the trails!
