Second Hike With My Dog Hiker - This Time Towsley Canyon

It was a beautiful morning here in the Santa Clarita Valley this morning. A few clouds in the sky and not to hot/not to cold. My friend Linda came over and she and I, along with my dog Hiker headed over to Towsley Canyon to hike up to The Narrows. It was a 2.25 mile hike and Hiker seemed to really enjoy her walk. The creek is not flowing this time of year. Once we get some rain, it will be back to full flow. Seemed to be quite a few hikers out on the trail today. Looking forward to the spring when the wildflowers will be blooming.

Hiker's First "Real" Hike

As some of you may know from my other blogs, I adopted a dog on October 13, 2011. I named her Hiker and she is a Australian Cattle Dog Mix. She is just a little over a year old.

Today my friend Linda and I took Hiker for her first "real" hike over in Placerita Canyon. Hiker loves her walks and up until today, the longest walk she had taken with me was 2 miles, but today she did 4 miles and she did very well. She is really good on the leash and she was checking out all of the new smells and new sounds. She kept watching the trees because she would hear the birds.

Here are some photos that I took of the hike and also some that my friend Linda took.
