Wordless Wednesday - Arastradero Preserve

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!

Domeek wanted to make sure that Miss Snickerdoodle and I had a fantastic week while she was (currently "is") staying with us, so she took us to a bunch of hiking trails, parks, and walks! Luckily we even got to venture out to a new spot...it's called the Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto.

The preserve is a mix of steep hills, forests, valleys, and grasslands. We decided to take the steepest trail of them all. It was only about 3 miles long, but man oh man, did it feel sooooo much further!

When we first got to the preserve, there were signs that said that coyotes had been seen on some of the trails and that dogs weren't allowed on them...and then when we got into the car, the first thing that we saw when leaving the parking lot - an adolescent coyote!!!!! :-D Wowee!! I think that might have been the biggest dog that I have ever seen!!! Crazy! 

We had such a wonderful time that we'll definitely be going back!

Have a great day everyone!

  2. That trail looks like a good workout! And I'm really glad that coyote kept his distance; some coyotes in my neighborhood are very brave about trying to get little pups who are walking on leash with their people!

  3. Looks like the dogs had a lot of fun. There's a lot of coyotes in my neighborhood although we haven't had any encounters yet. Good thing you avoided one.

  5. Is your mum showing off for Miss Snickerdoodle...you know....pretending that you ALWAYS go on such fantastic walks? Just thought we'd ask.

    Don't like the sound of coyotes nearby.

  10. Oh man, yeah. Koira got bit by a coyote on a path just outside the city limits here a few years ago, which was super scary even though the bite was rather minor.

    Glad you had a fun walk.
