Thus Begins Hiking Season!

We’ve been itching to do more outside and get hiking again, but winters in Seattle make it hard to want to stay outside for long periods of time. We decided to suck it up no matter what the weather and hike around Deception Pass State Park on Whidbey Island. The rain stopped just in time for us to have a dry, somewhat warm hike. It turned out to be a lot of fun and we really exhausted the Corgi (ALWAYS a good thing)!

We are very excited that the weather is slowly getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and that hiking season is upon us! More adventures to come!

  1. Every time I see your pictures of Devyn at the beach and around areas that I grew up it makes me miss home and want to get back there to go hiking and let my Corgi play on the beach! Such fun to see your pictures! 🙂

  2. You’re right about the weather – people in the Northwest who wait for nice weather don’t get out much.
    Beautiful place, beautiful doggie! My father’s favorite hiking partner (other than his wife) was Beckon, also a corgi. That dog could climb, too! On descents with exposure my dad would lower him on a rope, a rare occurrence.
    Nice post. It’s great to read stories from my home town.

  3. What a great hike! LMPP wants to know if you ever take in foster Corgis? She would very much like to write her name in the sand, right next to Devyn’s. I told her it was a long shot. But she made me ask anyway. ( Sometimes I find it hard to believe how much power these dogs have. All she has to do is insist, and I become her unwilling slave.)

  4. Quite the adventure! Funny though, while you wait for winter to end, we hope it lasts longer. 100+ degrees every day in the summer, and none of our dogs want to even go outside!
