Vegans on a Monadnock

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.IMG_0433 _Snapseed

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. IMG_0472 _Snapseed

Granite used to be quarried here so there are still big chunks lying about.

The entire time it threatened to rain on us.IMG_0474 _Snapseed

But we made it back to the car dry.Image 1 _Snapseed

When we got home, I made us a couple of smoothies with mango, peaches, tangerines, strawberries and pineapples.IMG_0490 _Snapseed

And the dogs, who are city dogs through and through, recouped from being out in nature.IMG_5038 _Snapseed
