My Little Woodsman


Or rather Woodsdog.  While Dave and John mountain biked along a portion of the Rails to Trails project trail in the Poconos, Oliver and I went for a hike on the Glen Onoko trail.  It was a beautiful and very steep trail that meandered along a fast moving stream that led a very tall waterfall.

It has quite an intimidating warning sign at the base.

To give you an idea of the steepness, there were times I needed to hoist my little guy up some rocks.  Needless to say, I was glad he was wearing his harness and leash.

He's a little bold fella.

Here's a photo of the stream.  I love the flare the sun cast on my lens.


Here's a picture of the first level of the falls.  Very pretty.


But there's more!  This is the main falls.  Pretty high, but difficult to discern without a reference point...and Oliver wasn't up to cooperating.




After tooling around at the base of the falls (Oliver kept splashing leaves), we discovered a way to the top.

This was the cherry.  Such a beautiful view.


I would not have found it so challenging except for all the new fallen slippery leaves.  The leaves posed much anxiety on the way down when we "lost" the trail and found ourselves essentially slip n sliding our way down quite a distance.  It was almost a Bear Grils moment.  Oliver got quite anxious and actually was growling with nervous impatience because I wouldn't let him go when we were taking a ride down the leaves. I think he thought he could do a better job for himself.

Like I said, my little woodsman.

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
