Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

The human kids had a day off from school today, so hubby and I took all the kids hiking! The trail was steep and very rocky. My recollection of the hike to Flat Top is that it is easier yet longer. All of us (except Sabaka!) were ready to be done after these 3 miles to Sharp Top!! Gorgeous autumn views!!

Pictures to follow...

Waiting on the rest of the fam (whoever had the dog did alot of waiting!):



At the summit:



"Hey, look! There's a kitty!" No kidding...it worked!



Gorgeous Autumn day!

Lisa, those are great pictures! Looks like you guys all had a great time. I love that part of the East Coast, some of the best camping trips I ever had were to Shenandoah when I was in college.

And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Jen, it ascends 1400 feet in only 1.5 miles! No leaf pic up there... psycho dog was all into the hiking and did not want to ever be still. I actually cheated on the way up and walked with the dog alot, allowing him to pull me a little! Bob got the crazy boy on the way down! Twisted Evil

Awesome pics! Looks like a perfect day. I do the same thing on trails, let the dog pull me up and then hand him off to hubby to be pulled down. Lol
