This morning we got up early and took a trip to Waterton Lakes National Park to do some hiking in the mountains.
The dogs were very excited to be out hiking in the mountains.
We hiked up to a little waterfall that is well hidden from the main trail. The dogs thought it was fun climbing boulders and jumping over logs to get there. I was just happy that I didn't fall in the stream.
Here we are taking a break. Bosley thought this nice big rock was a great place to rest.
Some of the trails that we hiked today were very narrow with lots of turns and of course lots of trees. This means that you cannot always see what is ahead of you. We were walking down one of these trails and I could hear people on the path coming towards us. Suddenly I heard bike tires screeching to a halt and a voice yell "Bear!" and someone sounded their air horn. I then could see a very shocked looking young man on a bike - so I stopped walking and looked around for the bear (we didn't want to get eaten). The guy on the bike then yelled back to his partner "It's a dog". Bosley was walking at the end of his leash out in front of us and the guy saw Bosley come out around a corner before he saw the rest of us. The biker came up and laughed nervously, saying he was sorry that he thought Bosley was a bear. I think that Bosley nearly scared the pants right off of that guy!
Maybe someone could confuse the two? By the way, we saw this bear from the safety of the car. I am sure glad we didn't run into him on the trail.
The puppies are all tired out from their hiking trip today and have been sleeping ever since we got home, even Maggie. Maybe I should take them on more mountain hikes.
