This weekend we went on a short hike in Arabia Mountain. We walked along two trails. The first was “Forest Hill” and it was, well, forest-y.
We went past Arabia Lake. Nikko (our girl pup) was feeling adventurous and ended up falling in the lake. Poor girl. She was ok. I didn’t get a picture of her falling in…what kind of mother do you think I am??
After we passed the lake, we took “Mile Rock” trail back to the nature center. This part of the trail is all rock. Although Arabia Mountain is called a mountain, it’s actually a granite monadnock. This just means it’s an isolated and exposed rock hill.
Granite used to be quarried here so there are still big chunks lying about.
The entire time it threatened to rain on us.
But we made it back to the car dry.
When we got home, I made us a couple of smoothies with mango, peaches, tangerines, strawberries and pineapples.
And the dogs, who are city dogs through and through, recouped from being out in nature.
