Weekend Hike: Chichaqua Greenbelt


We took Poison on her first off-leash hike this morning. We hiked for two miles - the first mile was mowed, but the second mile was heavy prairie and dried-up marshland. Once Poison figured out how to jump her way through the prairie, she was fine! Rocket flushed about a dozen marsh hawks and both adult dobes took off in pursuit. How they thought they were going to catch them, I'm not sure... but they both came back when called/toned.

I downloaded a new trek-mapping app called Trails that ended up working very well. As an added bonus, it generates a Google Earth file for each recorded hike.  Here's a screenshot of our hike today:


I know, I know, I'm way too excited about this.  Too bad!  I plan on mapping all of our hikes from now on. You all will just have to suffer through it.  ;)
