 Takin' the dog for a walk with a full pack
It's always a tough time of year to get out and hike...just too much stuff going on in the family life to find some time to hike.
I was very disappointed when the wetaher didn't cooperate for 7 Sisters, and then the following week was the Southern Pressie Traverse that was missed due to my upside down priorities.

So despite the rain, I decided to take the dog for a walk. Drove up to Lin-Wood on Sunday, filled up the pack with dog treats, water, and a couple different layers and set foot down the Wilderness Trail (or whatever it's called now).
It was a muddy nightmare and my white dog was soon 2-tone with the bottom now mud and the top being a wet white.
We didn't see too many people and the lot was failry empty, but the Pemi was raging from the snow melt so we got to enjoy Mother Natures water display.
I was surprised to see so much packed snow on the trail to Franconia Falls but it was easy to walk on and soon we were at the Falls for a quick lunch before we headed back to the car.
The Falls are very hypnotic and soothing but we didn't stay too longh so I took a couple quick shots and moved on in order to get the dog home for a much needed bath.
I'm not a big fan of solo hiking, but when you need to get out or if you're looking for an easy family hike with a decent pay-off, Franconia Falls might fit the bill.
Pic's of the dirty dog to follow soon!
Bill
