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.

Well, after returning home from my road trip to Colorado over New Years (52 hours of driving in an 8 day span, whew!!) I felt very inspired to get outdoors and do some hiking! Living in the suburbia of NJ and spending most of my time in Philadelphia, I don't see much nature in my daily routine, and neither does Maya. Fortunately, we have a decent backyard surrounded by a woodsy, tree filled area... even so, Maya and I both need to get out more and stretch our legs! So, I rounded up a bunch of friends and we caravanned up to the beautiful Lehigh Gorge State Park where Glen Onoko Falls is located. The nice thing about living outside of Philadelphia is that there is an abundance of beautiful hiking spots within only a few hours driving distance! Boy, being as out of shape as I am, Glen Onoko is an INTENSE hike! Rough, steep, rocky terrain... my muscles were sore for almost a week after the hike! Maya had an absolute blast, though. She was the only dog amongst a group of about 12 or so people, for most of the hike. Towards the end of the hike, a couple other friends showed up, and Maya got to play with her 4 month old Doberman friend Isis, as well as her two new Boxer friends Sophie and Gus! Maya was an absolute delight to hike with. We finally got to put our off-leash recall training to some good use... being away from busy roads and city streets, I felt comfortable enough to let Maya run... and she stuck with the pack the whole time! She would often run ahead to the front of the group of hikers... stop and wait until I caught up... and then bolt ahead again! I was so impressed by how agile and nimble she was, effortlessly leaping up huge, steep rock formations that took me easily twice as long to climb! Anyway, here are some photos from the hike!

Thanks guys! Ceara-- next time I will definitely let you know! In fact, I would really like to get out hiking somewhere this weekend, if you are interested! After work, I'l go back to the NJ/ PA husky meet up thread that I started and see if I can generate any interest in a hike for this weekend? Or perhaps the following, if people have obligations already this weekend.

Ah, next weekend will be better for me anyway. After a couple days with a sore throat, I finally went to the doctor, and sure enough, it's strep. Yeck! This weekend will be filled with rest and hot tea for me!
