Hiking meets a little history…

especially in a state like Virginia. I guess when your state’s home to one of the Thirteen Original Colonies, and the old Capital of the Confederacy there’s a little history to discover.

Having never been till our day trip on Saturday, Jeff suggested we take the dogs for a long hike along the Manassas National Battlefield Park. Not only was it beautiful and rich with Civil War history, but it was a nice change of pace from our normal dog walk/ workout routine. Besides, anything that makes the dogs sleep for the rest of the day is a-ok in my book.

Now, I’m not usually one to be excited about activities that require a lot of nature, but since Jeff’s been working so hard on the house lately I thought it was only fair to participate in an activity he wanted to do, and turns out I kind of loved it.

Here’s a few photos from our little adventure.

I might have circled a certain crazy dog that photobombed Jeff with his excitement over the hike. That one loves to be one with nature.

For Piper and I, nature’s not always our best friend.

If you’re in the northern Virginia area, I highly recommend the trails. Just a quick forty-minute drive from D.C.!
