Red Top Romp

We took Tucker to Red Top Mountain over the weekend.  This state park is only about 25 minutes from our house and offers several wooded trails with access to Lake Allatoona.  It is fast becoming one of Tucker’s favorite romping grounds.

For this outing we chose the White Tail trail, which leads to a portion of shoreline that is the perfect place for a refreshing game of stick fetching.

I’m not sure why, but a rather crazed expression tends to accompany this game.

Every once in awhile Tucker would pause to catch his breath (puppies do tire easily!) and then go right back to the romping.

When the fetching was finished, we continued on until the trail ended at a beautiful collection of boulders that overlook the lake.  Mr. T was delighted to show off his new-found rock climbing skills.  I guess we can now call him a boulder climbing beast!

One of the benefits of having a fifty pound puppy is that hubby and I (I guess you can call him a boulder climbing beast too!)  are getting a good bit of exercise.

And a good time was had by all. 🙂
