“Oh! I’ll take the high road and
You’ll take the low road,
And I’ll be in Scotland afore ye;”
Actually, Scotland wasn’t in my plans. In fact, I don’t really know where Scotland is. But wherever it is, and whenever I plan to go there, I’m sure that I will get there “afore ye”, because I am Speed, remember?
But today I wanted to show you the high road that dad and I took. It is the road that goes up and over the hill to the lake on the other side. It is a wonderfully long and exhilarating excursion, and dad and I love taking it. When we go all the way to the lake it is about an eight mile round trip and I am rather tired by the time I get back. By then I have drunk all the water that dad brought along for me and a stop at the doggie water fountain is very welcome.
After a short rest on the back lawn, however, I am up and ready to run around again. This pup loves to go!
But look! Down on the “low road.” Yes, way down there … can you see mom? She is walking with her friend Catherine and her dog Raphael. I put in the arrow to help you. They are on a two-mile loop. But they just look like small specs to us on the High Road.
Afterwards we posed for a group photo before heading off for home. Rafael is only about a year and a half old, but he is bigger than me!
It was another fun day of hiking … on both the low and the high roads.
