Molly went to the Vet today to have her stitches removed. Every Thing looks very good so she was released to get back to her normal walks, Hikes, Dog Park visits. This is good news as Molly was getting restless and needed a good run. I'm so happy she healed faster than originally diagnosed.

Getting back into the swing of things by finding a Geocache on a trail near our home. GCQ66Q "Tangerine Dream 1". We started looking for "Tangerine Dream 2" but stirred up some wasp so we will wait for another day. The name of the cache "Tangerine Dream" made me think of a synth band by the same name that I listened to as a teenager. A goggle search showed that they still make music. Wow, definitely a time warp! The album I had was from the late 70's on vinyl. I think I'll order a CD just for fun.

We went to the Vet yesterday and received good news. Molly is healing well and can resume her daily walks. Woo Hoo!  She will need to go back next week to get the stitches out. I like good news, It refreshes the soul.

Back on the Trail Again!

Molly is getting around fine and isn't favoring her leg at all. I can tell she is feeling a little cooped up and I wish we could go do something. Oh well, we will just need to stick it out to the end.

A sad day for Team Trail Walker. Molly injured her hind leg requiring the repair of a lacerated ligament. The Vet says she will be fine but no hiking for 4 to 6 weeks. I guess summer is over for us! We will be looking forward to a speedy recovery and the fall colors in the Rockies.

On our way home from a excellent stay in the high country of Colorado. Stopped on Cottonwood Pass to hike a trail to "Lost Lake". Found GCK5QK "Little Timber" and GCJZ3F "Lost and Found" along the trail. Very nice trail with lots of wild flowers. Just outside Johnson's Village we found GCGTJH "Spooky Bat Cave". All in All a wonderful vacation.

Team Trail Walker was  joined by some first time Geocacher's today. Andrew and Allie are youngsters that stay with us on occasion. My daughter Trisha also joined us as we hunted "Things with wings" GCPTDZ near the model airplane park at Chatfield State Park. We all enjoyed watching the airplanes fly by overhead. First time I ever saw a model jet, impressive.

Molly and I  visited Chatfield Dog Park first thing this morning for a good 4 mile walk. (Molly probably ran 2 or 3 times that much) We then walked another 1.5 miles as we hunted for a new Geocache near by; Chief's Wooded Hollow GCP70H. The cache is located on the Highline Canal at the edge of the State Park. A Coal Train passed by as we were signing the log so we just sat and watched for a while. I like trains! I like Geocaching! I like walking with the dog! A great morning.
