"Lead us not into temptation. We'll find the way ourselves."
Forgive me the duplicate photo from Facebook if you've already seen it. I'm in the middle of a very long computer change over and have no real access to my camerra photos.
When we lived a bit further away from where we do now, I would ride my bike to this church which would serve as a nice water break after some steep hill climbs. Now that we live close, we rarely ride this area, so instead, it's become a nice 4-6 mile hike for the cracker and criminal. I can always tell when they like a particular hike. Loki will try to turn back if he's not enjoying it and Juno will pull harder to get to a more interesting place. But on this particular hike, they can take in views and scents from a variety of farms that include orchards, vineyards, horses, goats, chickens, dogs and cats--all so farmilar to them by now. And they seem to enjoy it, hiking a reasonable pace but meandering at the perfect spots. And just like me, they find this pleasant community church a fine resting spot for their dogs. Not too eager to leave and happy to sit while I photograph them, they resist a multitude of wild life temptations surrounding them.
