Wild Cat Mountain Hike
It was a beautiful day July 14th 2007. Jon and I decided we should go hike in the WildCat Mountains. Well the directions in the phone book were not to clear. It would have been easier had they said, " take a right at the red barn after you have gone two miles north of the lake by the blue barn. Then turn left after you see that 3 legged cow and proceed until you see a sign that says Wild Cat Mountain hike!"
I took pictures of course!! Here are a few on our way to the hike.
The old, Out the car window shot! lol
I was really trying to get the road ahead here, guess my hand doesn't see too well!
Just a couple more shots along the way. I think I missed the red barn.
This was the last picture I took on our way to our hike. Jon said make this the last one please! You know if you keep stopping and taking pictures we are never going to get there and you missed the turn already! KIDS! ha he was right though! lol
So we finally make it and decide to go for a hike.
It was our goal to make it to this far away peak!
We started out and it was going rather well. I had to call Candy back and tell her to stay on the proper side of the fence. She did listen, but first she had to roll in cow dung!
DOGS! Jon and the dogs were ahead of me most the time.
I kept stopping to take pictures! Like these
Jon decided to wait up for me. He said, " Mom just take a picture of the Yucca plant and lets get to hiking already!"
Pretty soon there they were clear up ahead of me again. lol
By now it was mid afternoon and it was getting HOT! HOT! like around 100 degrees. Way to hot to be hiking and the sign said, "FISHING" so we were thinking there would be water somewhere! We walked and we walked and we walked.
This was our goal, we figured maybe the pond/stream was here.
However we never made it that far!
So we decided we would head back to the car. Wow what long walk! Jon gave me the backpack and headed back still way ahead of me. Sammy D went with Jon.
I kept taking breaks to ummm ya take pictures! I'm not going to admit I could barely move, it was so friggin hot! Even Candy was Hot
I thought for awhile I was going to have to carry her. She was slower than me! I did take a few more photos, besides it was a good way to take a break and get some water.
By now I'm pretty sure I'm getting heat stroke, I seen this cliff and thought any minute there would be someone coming over the top to shoot at us! It reminded me of the old Country western Movies!
Then I seen a cloud that looked like a Native American
Still have a long haul back to the car. Jon and Sammy are out of sight and Candy and I are dragging booty!
Oh my gosh! Was this my idea?? ROFL Pretty views, but not at 100 degrees and no shade. This will be a walk we will have to take on a cooler day. Then I remembered this was rattle snake country. However I think they were smart and were in their holes.
Now even the clouds were making faces at me
Where is the car? lol
Sammy D came back to check on me and Candy. Then he went to stay with Jon. Jon and Sammy D were sitting by the car when Candy and I finally arrived a full 20 minutes later! Sammy D is such a good dog to stay with his boy. :) We got in the car and headed to town to get mail. It was a HOT day, but we did have a little fun and got out and about. We stopped to get mail and I took one last picture for the day.
Thanks for coming along on our walk in Wild Cat Mountains. I actually took around one hundred photos! I just picked out my favorites to share with you here in this blog. I hope you enjoy them as much I did taking them.
