Camping Dog

We took to the road for the entire month of September for a long camping trip that was months in the planning. Our minivan was crammed to the gills.


But Toby still had his little throne to sit upon.


And in the campsites he enjoyed being off the rocks in his Quik Shade bed.

Fall Creek Falls State Park

We hiked into some incredibly beautiful scenery throughout the trip. Sometimes we had a lake view for lunch all to ourselves.

Crystal Falls, Pickett State Park
A few times we discovered waterfalls of incredible beauty.

The Tunnel, John Muir Trail, Pickett State Forest


Sand Cave, Cumberland Gap National Historic Park

 We ventured through dark tunnels and caves.

Mammoth Cave National Park


 And climbed steep Appalachian mountains to view misty valleys and forests.


White Rocks, Cumberland Gap National Historic Park

The leaves began to change as the season transitioned to autumn.

Louisville, Kentucky

 Other times,  we visited cities, to escape bad weather (thanks Florence and Michael) or to visit family. 

Aviation Museum, Bowling Green, Kentucky

And Toby and I hung out and took long walks while Ted learned all about his favorite libation on the famous Bourbon Trail.

Evan Williams Distillery, Louisville, Kentucky

Toby even got his paws into three states at once - Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia!

Tri-State Peak, Cumberland Gap NHP
Toby's glad to be home - mostly - but maybe he's dreaming of his hiking adventures.  Hopefully there will be many more.

Home Sweet Home

  5. Oh my goodness- you had such a happy adventure. You sure did find a gorgeous water fall! And I'm glad that Toby had his shaded bed with him. After all, he is the King!
