On another note, to celebrate the nice sunny day I decided to take the gang out for an adventure.
We are supposed to have sunny skies and 80 degrees this week (26.66C for my international friends). I am off hiking today, Yipee!
I met a new friend today, he is a black bear and he loves to hike as well. Although his owners said that they sometimes forget him at home. I couldn’t imagine such an abuse.This park has lots of trails and it’s a free day because of Mother’s Day. We are off to Hardy Ridge to see all the Plox, Bear Grass and other wildflowers.
I think the pinkish flowers are Indian Paintbrush and I think the yellow berry looking flower is my state flower, Oregon Grape.
There are lots of orange flowers out today. The guidebook says they might be wild onions, I am not beary sure I still think they are Indian Paintbrush. My roommates aren't really sure either, thankfully our lively hood doesn't rely on us identifying wild flowers.
|Indian Paintbrush or wild onion? You decide.|
Now for my secret mission, claim more land for stuffies around the world. This mountain doesn’t have a name, looks like stuffies are in possession of it now. It still counts as claiming land if I didn't make it to the top of the mountain, right?
Black bear and I decided to claim more land. It took us a while to get up the hill it was beary challenging but we made it (thanks to some help from our roommates).
Before we headed back down I figured I better take one last look before we head back down. Mt. Hood and Mt. Adam’s were supposed to be out today but we only saw clouds instead. I still see lots of hills (that need to be claimed by a certain Little Fox) and even a river to travel down. I wonder what else my roommates have planned for today????? Ugh I just heard them talk about mowing the lawn when we get home. I guess I better get my supervisors hat and a big glass of huckleberry lemonade to enjoy while I supervise the lawn mowing effort. Someone has to make sure it’s done right.
