Hiking with Greyhounds

Last Friday, Stephen and I took a day off from work and went on a "staycation". We were recently planning a weekend trip of hiking and staying at a Bed & Breakfast. When we started adding up the figures and it was just too expensive to go, so we decided to take a day off for a "staycation".
We headed up to Amicalola Falls in north Georgia for a 10 mile hike. I am not sure if I have ever hiked 10 miles before. We took Reagan and Riley along. We thought that maybe... just maybe... they would come home tired.
We found a vomiting log..... well the sap that had been pouring out of it was frozen.

We also found a flag.

I let Stephen hold Riley's leash for a while, but the novelty wore off and he gave her back to me.
Despite 10 miles, this is how Riley and Reagan looked during the last mile..... not very tired at all and still leading the way. Stephen and I decided it was about 2 miles too long for us in one day.All in all, we had a fun day away from work and burned lots of calories. Reagan was still a pain in the butt when we got home. She strolled around the house licking dog beds, crates, and floors and drinking too much water.
