Can You Believe it?

Wooooo! I hope every pup, kitty, and hamster are doing well!

Cornelia Marie and I wanted to let you all know what we did last weekend. See for Christmas, mom gave dad a little card and on that card it said that we were going away for the weekend to a cabin in the mountains! WOO! Our first trip with the little one. So we went to this place called Blue Ridge in Georgia. We had SO MUCH FUN! Mom took over 350 photos in three days! Good gracious. She never put the camera down.

Anyroo, we arrived to this cute little cabin last Friday to a warm 23 degrees F :) That night, it got down to 7 and we were ALL thrilled!
Upon entering the cabin, Cornelia Marie did something that we were not allowed to do... but she did it anyways!
Then Cornelia Marie settled in for a nice little nap in front of the fire and I stretched out on the sofa!!!
After a good night sleep, we awoke to a beautiful sunrise!

Heading into town, we made a discovery. Look at this. DAVE has his OWN road. How cool is that????
After we went into this cool store to get us some yummy treats, we set out to find a double waterfall. It was on this hike that dad thinks I am a mountain dog, HA ROOOO!

Wasn't that waterfall pretty? Oh, I almost forgot. As we were heading back to the cabin, we crossed this really neat bridge. Only one car could go across it at a time!

Now... we mentioned cookies. Mom got us these cookies that were called S'mores! MMMMmmmmmmm! So good and very nice to enjoy before the fire.

But wait! There is still one last COOL thing to tell you about. It SNOWED while we were at the cabin. We had headed back to town and mom was sitting in the car with us as Dad got dinner and sleet started to fall. Dad came out and helped mom get us out because it started to SNOW! Can you see it on our fur?

After dinner, more and more snow kept coming. It was so cool! Cornelia Marie tried to jump into the air and catch flakes. Look at us in our Puplights! We sure appreciate Steve and Kat telling us about them!

By morning, we had gotten about 1/4 of an inch of snow. How cool is that!

The snow tapered off from falling and mom got this really cool photo of the mountains.

On our drive home, the roads were kinda messy in some areas. This was a really scary curve. I didn't appreciate it. We went slip and sliding around but made it around just fine!

We were so happy to get home and see Tia. Our granna had come to check in on her while we were away. It took us a day to recover from the three day trip. We did alo of walking and hiking and snoofing and stuff. We go back in March and are super excited. There was so much that we didn't get to do, so we look forward to the next trip!!!

Well, just wanted to share some photos. It was hard going through the 350 plus photos to put photos in this post! Whew! Oh, and next Monday and Tuesday are special days ... so stay tuned!

Hugs,
Sitka

What a beautiful weekend you had! We like to go hiking in the north Georgia mountains and can HIGHLY recommend the Ravens Cliffs trail, about 2.5 miles back to a waterfall with a big, flat rock for the dogs & people to rest on. Maybe you might try that one on your visit in March, and if you happen to see a crazy lady with about 4 Siberians (ok, someone else will have two of them!) that might just be me. Happy hiking!

What a fun trip! I'm so glad that you got to experience some snow!

What a cool trip! When we go on a vacation or day trip, Mom's finger seems to be attached to ther shutter button, too. I remember the first camping trip after she go ther new camera, she took 550 pictures in 3 days. I think 500 of those were just in 1 day! Mom's go a little overboard with their picture taking sometimes.

It looks like you girls had a great time at the cabin, exploring the area, and playing in the snow. We are glad you made it home safely from the slippery drive.
