Happy Dogs In The Fort Jackson State Forest - Part 2

The dogs and I were walking in the Fort Jackson State forest (see also Part 1, posted yesterday):

The autumn color was wonderful and the mosses were soft under foot:

Occasional mushrooms had pushed up through the moss:

We didn't travel very far on the lane but instead took numerous side trips into the beautiful forest:

Seamus looked particularly noble as he bravely led the way:

Daphne, Clover and Fergus mostly just looked cute. As for Jack, he was running full speed at all times and difficult to get in a photo:

Hey, there's Jack up ahead, with Clover and Daphne following:

Back on the lane, Daphne stopped several times to check on me because I was so slow:

Seamus investigated interesting smells:

And it was a glorious day to be alive and walking in the beauty of nature:

Almost back to our car, the dogs broke into a run:

They were back at the car in a flash, so I called them onto another grassy lane which we explored briefly:

But mostly, our walk was over. The dogs jumped back up into the car and I counted to be sure they were all there. Then we headed for home:


  1. Such beautiful walks; you and the dogs are so lucky to live in such a wonderful part of the country. RB Eugene

    1. Thanks. It is indeed beautiful here, though the winters are long and rugged.
